SCHAUMBURG — Global Brass and Copper Holdings, Inc., whose properties include Olin Brass in East Alton, announced today that Robert Micchelli will retire as chief financial officer at the beginning of 2017.

Micchelli will step down from his full-time role effective July 1. At that time, Christopher Kodosky, vice president of finance for GBC, will be appointed CFO. Micchelli will continue to serve in an advisory capacity until his retirement in early 2017 to help ensure a smooth transition.

“Bob has been instrumental to GBC’s success and an outstanding steward of our financial strategy who has instilled a culture of financial accountability since joining as CFO in 2008. He has guided us through critical transitions including a private equity sponsored acquisition, a comprehensive business restructuring, our initial public offering in 2013, and the establishment of GBC as a successful NYSE listed company,” said John Wasz, GBC’s president and chief executive officer.

Kodosky joined GBC’s executive team in December 2014 as the Vice president of finance accountable for all aspects of GBC’s financial reporting, corporate and income tax accounting, internal controls, treasury and risk management, business analysis and strategic planning. In addition to effecting improvements in these areas, he has also led the development of various acquisition processes that have better positioned the company for growth.

Prior to joining GBC, Kodosky was employed in various capacities within AMCOL International Corporation for 10 years, most recently as CFO of its performance materials segment. He also served as the VP finance and corporate controller for GVW Holdings and, prior to that, provided merger and acquisition services as an employee of PricewaterhouseCoopers. Kodosky earned an Executive MBA from the Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management and a degree in accountancy from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and he is also a Certified Public Accountant.
