Our Keynote Speaker

Daniel D. Roup (Dan), Growth and Market Strategy Director for Alcoa, manages the company's global marketing programs and the Alcoa Commercial Center of Excellence where the next generation of leaders absorb and deploy customer-centric best practices. Alcoa, with Northeast Ohio operations in Cleveland, Barberton, Niles and Canton, is a global leader in lightweight metals engineering and manufacturing.

Dan began his Alcoa career in 1989 in operations at Alcoa North American Rolled Products in Davenport, Iowa. His career pivoted toward marketing when he was named Senior Application Engineer responsible for identifying customer requirements that matched Alcoa's value proposition of developing multi-material solutions that advance our world.

He was then named Marketing Manager for Commercial Transportation in Alcoa Rolled Products, building upon a product portfolio that encompassed automotive and aerospace applications. Later, Dan led Alcoa's strategic analysis of opportunities for lightweight, high-strength applications in the military market. Today, he drives global marketing programs in Aerospace, Defense, Automotive, and Commercial Transportation, as well as for several emerging opportunities.

Dan holds a bachelor's degree in Industrial Engineering from Iowa State University and an MBA from the University of Iowa Tippie School of Management Executive Program. Dan and his wife, Karen, enjoy life with their three children, and live in Medina, Ohio.
