MEET THE TEAM
Introducing Stefano Evangelista (Account Manager Purchasing) in a short interview about his mission at REAZN.
WHO ARE YOU?
Hello, I’m Stefano, I started my career as an accountant, but I quickly got bored and jumped into metal trading. After gaining experience with both ferrous and non-ferrous metals I left Italy to pursue high achievements. In 2020 I accepted the role of Account Manager Purchasing at REAZN where I am contributing to shape the future of metal recycling.
WHAT’S YOUR MISSION IN THE COMPANY?
My purpose in the company is to take care of the purchasing activity by sourcing scraps and raw materials across Europe and beyond.
This implies implementing the company’s vision and strategy based on the sustainability pillars (ESG) and specifically the improvement of sustainable sourcing practices such as the closed loop with our partners, the transport optimization, and the research of cleaner recycling technologies.
WHAT IS THE MOST CHALLENGING PART OF YOUR JOB?
Every day is a challenge, getting enough scrap to keep production going!
Besides the regular daily tasks of monitoring markets, stocks, and incoming materials, I have the opportunity to increase my knowledge of this industry by developing commercial contacts and participating to zinc related conferences. In fact, I strongly believe that the networking activity and the constant update of our base of partners will eventually lead REAZN to build a sustainable supply chain enabling the production of low-carbon zinc alloys.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT WORKING AT REAZN?
I have the feeling that innovation and recycling have never got along until the moment REAZN showed up in the market bringing a “think out of the box” attitude. Thanks to this, the company has been able to grow rapidly and onboard motivated people, which are happy to work in a sparkly environment. As a Millennial, I personally enjoy working in a fast-paced company, with amazing colleagues and sensational teambuilding activities!
