Irene Martinez Canorea – Procurement Forecast Analyst

Irene had visions of spending the summer of 2017 taking in the sights and sounds of her home country, Spain.

Unfortunately for Irene, the metals world beckoned her to Chicago so that she could watch commodity and industrial metal price charts on a 13-inch computer screen.

Irene has joined the research team at MetalMiner as the procurement forecast analyst, having completed a dual master’s degree in mechanical and aerospace engineering.

Here’s the best part — Irene spent the better part of six months helping a U.S. manufacturing company identify the root cause of a quality program. Get this … it all came down to steel wire!

When not in the office, Irene loves going to the beach (even if that is a complex process in Chicago) and boy can she bust a move!
