As part of a strategy to maintain executive continuity in the leadership of Allied, Paul Jamieson, current president of Allied Mineral Products, LLC (Allied), was named president and CEO effective May 1.
This change is in conjunction with current chairman and CEO Jon R. Tabor announcing his decision to step away from his CEO duties to work exclusively as Allied’s Board chairman.
Jamieson has been with Allied for 33 years. Starting in refractory sales into steel markets in Canada, he steadily rose through the organization taking on larger responsibilities within the sales organization for Canada and the United States. In 2017, he became president of Allied. Jamieson has a bachelor’s degree in ceramic engineering from McMaster University in Ontario, Canada.
Tabor has been with Allied for 32 years. He served as president and CEO for six years prior to his becoming Allied’s chairman and CEO in 2018. Tabor will stay actively involved in the business but plans to step back from the day-to-day operations with a reduced schedule and will focus more on strategy and key initiatives.
“I am humbled and honored to continue with the stewardship of Allied as president and am committed to being your CEO,” Jamieson told employees. “I am dedicated to ensuring the continued sustainability of the Allied ESOP and will work with our team to build on the solid foundation already set by Jon (Tabor) and the executive team. At Allied we plan, and we have a strong plan into the future.”
