Hans Jürgen Domnick
Hans J. Domnick has worked in international steel trading for over 40 years. In the course of this time, he has served in many different fields, from raw materials to special products, but focusing in particular on bulk steel semis and long products.
He started his career with Coutinho, Caro & Co. in Hamburg (later known as Coutinho & Ferrostaal GmbH and C&F International), filling various positions with responsibilities for long products/semis, raw materials, and business development. This work included overseas assignments in Europe and South America, but mainly in Asia. After leaving CCC, he worked for Stemcor UK Ltd, London as Director for Long Products/Semis, followed later by a move to F. J. Elsner Trading GmbH, Vienna as Director for Far East Operations. Hans J. Domnick has started working as an independant consultant on specific business areas within worldwide steel trading.
He has been a participant, and for some years acting as Chairman of the Traders’ Committee, at IREPAS Conferences for nearly 15 years.
Considering his many years on the job, it may well be true, what he once said, when being questioned about the industry, namely “STEEL IS SEXY”!
