Steel Dynamics execs to be honored by Mad Anthonys
Two of the co-founders of Fort Wayne-based Steel Dynamics Inc. have been named 2023 recipients of the Red Coat honors by Mad Anthonys Foundation. Mark Millett and Richard Teets, along with previous Red Coat recipient Keith Busse, co-founded SDI in 1993.
“We are thrilled to recognize Mark and Dick as Red Coat recipients this year,” said Sherri Miller, Mad Anthonys Board President. “They have played a key role in driving SDI’s outstanding corporate citizenship over the years and in making our community, our city and our region an outstanding place to call home.”
In its 30 years, SDI has become of the largest domestic steel producers and metals recyclers in the U.S.
Both executives held key leadership roles at SDI. Millett was named president and CEO in 2012 and continues to serve in that role.
“To be named a Red Coat recipient is incredible – and to be named one alongside Dick makes it even better and more memorable,” said Millett.
After a 40-year career in the steel industry, Teets retired from SDI in 2016. He served as executive vice president for steelmaking and chief operating officer of steel operations.
Millett and Teets will be honored at the Red Coat Gala, which will be held May 20th at the Clyde Theater in Fort Wayne
