Co-Founder, CEO - Azul Partners, Inc.
A third-generation metals enthusiast, Lisa tried several times to leave the metals industry for something more glamorous, but she just couldn’t seem to bring herself to do it. Lisa currently functions as Executive Editor & Co-Founder of MetalMiner, and as Managing Director and CEO of Azul Partners. In 2004, the CEO of a Tier 1 automotive company challenged her to save his company some money, so Lisa formed Aptium Global with partner Stuart Burns. Lisa began trading semi-finished aluminum metals in June of 1994 after earning her master’s degree in Public Administration (of all things) at New York University. (It was there that she ended up working for a shady aluminum trader who turned out to have the Russian mob after him, but that’s another story.)
