Dan DiMicco is a leading businessman who serves as Chairman Emeritus of Nucor Corporation after having spent 32 years with the company. Under his stewardship, Nucor was the largest steel manufacturer in the United States throughout its most successful period. Starting as a Plant Metallurgist and Manager of Quality control in 1982, Dan was instrumental in the growth of the company: from September 2000 through to the end of 2012, Nucor completed over 50 acquisitions for a total investment of $6.5 billion. These efforts have been noted in many nation-wide publications such as BusinessWeek, who ranked Nucor as the United States’ No.1 Company, based on sales growth and return on investment. Dan DiMicco has also been inducted into the North Carolina Business Hall of Fame and was included in Harvard Business Review’s list of 100 Best Performing CEOs in the world in 2010. A few years later in 2013 the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce also awarded him the distinguished “Citizen of the Carolinas” award. Dan DiMicco has also authored two books. His first American Made: Why Making Things Will Return Us to Greatness, was published by St Martin’s Press in 2015. In it, he shares lessons learned from an almost 40-year career in the manufacturing industry and addresses the challenges he’s faced throughout. He also sets out a path forward for economic growth, middle-class prosperity and American competitiveness. His second book, Steeling America’s Future, focuses in on this subject matter and advocates for returning manufacturing industries to a position of prominence in the American economic system, continuing to champion domestic manufacturing in the Unites States. Throughout his career, Dan DiMicco has worked hard to keep trade issues at the forefront of US public policy. In 2016 he used his wealth of experience to advise in public office with the aim of growing US manufacturing and became Senior Trade and Economic Advisor to the Trump campaign, later sitting on the United States Trade Representative Advisory Committee for Trade and Policy Negotiation (ACTPN).
