Roy Harvey Assumes Leadership of Alcoa’s Global Primary Products Group

October 6, 2015

Lightweight and high performance metals leader Alcoa (NYSE:AA) today
announced that Roy Harvey, Executive Vice President, Human Resources and
Environment, Health, Safety and Sustainability, is appointed President
of Global Primary Products (GPP), succeeding Bob Wilt, effective
immediately. Harvey previously served as both Chief Operating Officer
and Chief Financial Officer of GPP, Alcoa’s upstream business. The
Company recently announced plans to separate the upstream and value-add
businesses into independent publicly-traded companies.

“Roy Harvey is an excellent leader to continue the transformation of our
Global Primary Products Group into one of the industry’s strongest
global competitors,” said Klaus Kleinfeld, Alcoa Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer. “He has a strong track record of success working
across the upstream businesses – in mining, refining, smelting and
casting operations – in Europe, South America and North America. Roy’s
experience and proven performance will be invaluable as Alcoa prepares
to launch the upstream business as a public company.”

During his career, Harvey has also held several key corporate and
group-level business assignments. He served as Director of Corporate
Treasury and as head of Investor Relations and most recently he had
oversight for all talent programs for Alcoa’s 60,000 worldwide employees
as well as responsibility for the Company’s global health, safety and
environmental programs.

Harvey graduated from Columbia University School of Engineering and
earned Master Degrees in Finance and International Business from the
Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania.

Kleinfeld also thanked Bob Wilt for his 16 years of service to Alcoa.
“As President of GPP U.S. during the economic recession, Bob led Alcoa’s
upstream facilities in the U.S. through one of the most dramatic
downturns in the history of the aluminum industry. Most recently, as GPP
President, Bob led the restructuring of Alcoa’s global primary portfolio
and oversaw a wide range of productivity improvements that substantially
increased the global competitiveness of Alcoa’s upstream businesses.”
