Indium Corporation’s Donna Vareha-Walsh, Director of Sales and Global Supply Chain and Trade Compliance, will share her industry expertise at the 6th Annual World Congress of Smart Materials 2020, March 11-13, 2020, in Barcelona, Spain.

Indium and gallium are perceived as critical and rare metals for the CIG target market. Both metals are often thought of as limited in supply, as well as volatile from a price perspective. In CIG Supply Chain and Recycling, Vareha-Walsh will discuss the plentiful world supplies of indium and gallium and their associated recyclability. Her presentation will show an overview of supply and demand drivers, including the recycling impact and history of price drivers. A review of the outcome from the recent Fanya Metal Exchange auctions on supply and price will also be covered.

She is responsible for sourcing and sales of critical raw materials, such as indium, gallium, germanium, tin, and silver for Indium Corporation’s manufacturing operations, as well as the trading and reclaim business.

Additional experience includes finance responsibilities as a Business Unit Controller, sales expertise as Director of Sales and a New Business Development Manager, and participation in the metals recycling and scrap/reclaim markets. She earned a bachelor’s degree in finance from Duquesne University and an MBA from the University of Pittsburgh.
