Chief Technology Officer at Liberty House Group

As chief technology officer of the Liberty House Group Eric is leading their move towards clean, low-carbon methods across all of its industrial operations, from mining and energy through to high-value engineered products. 

He was previously chief technology officer for Erdemir, Europe's third largest steel producer, after a three-decade career with ArcelorMittal. As chief technology officer for ArcelorMittal in the Americas he was responsible for capital investment strategy and technical oversight across more than 40 steel-making facilities with combined capacity of over 40m t/a.

At Erdemir Eric was responsible for their engineering transformation program, devising and implementing a wide range of innovative technologies, processes and solutions to support the Group's strategy for growth and global best practice.  This included securing environmental best practice solutions and vertical integration opportunities.  He achieved a major expansion of the Group's research and development capability and established a technical academy to nurture a new generation of engineers for the business.

Eric is guiding Liberty on their journey to implement the latest technologies in scrap processing, lower-carbon electric arc furnaces, primary steel making and mining, all designed to improve efficiency and lower the carbon footprint of their business.
