From a small group of visionary researchers, engineers, and metallurgists, we’ve grown to a team of over 90 professionals – and counting. The endorsement of our innovative technology and business model by a world-class investor syndicate fuels our passion to decarbonize one of the world’s largest sources of CO2 emissions. We’re transforming how metals are made.
Chairman & CEO
Tadeu has over 40 years of metals industry experience, with expertise in global strategy, technology development, and customer-focused growth. As CEO of CBMM (80% market share for niobium) he grew revenue from $100M to over $2B and led a global program that saw the niobium market increase by more than eightfold.
At Boston Metal, Tadeu has overseen two oversubscribed funding rounds and team growth from single digits to 80+ employees. A metallurgical engineer, Tadeu is the lead independent director at Ivanhoe Mines (copper, zinc, nickel, and platinum group metals) and is an invited lecturer at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at MIT.
Fernanda oversees human resources, financial operations, risk management, and legal affairs. She has more than 20 years of executive experience in these areas, as well as in compliance, investor relations, and government relations in the metals and mining industry.
Fernanda is a member of the Board of Directors at NioCorp Development Ltd and just prior to joining Boston Metal, she provided legal counsel services to a range of global enterprises.
Stephan leads the engineering and research & development groups working to refine the Molten Oxide Electrolysis technology as the company moves toward the commercialization of its ground-breaking process to produce steel without carbon emissions.
Stephan brings three decades of experience in the global aluminum and steel industries, having held senior positions in world-class engineering and technical services companies. Prior to joining Boston Metal, he was a partner and technical director at Hatch Ltd for more than 18 years. Before that, Stephan worked for 12 years at Tata Steel Europe BV (the former Hoogovens Steel Company) in the engineering group of what today is Danieli Corus BV.
Adam Rauwerdink, PhD
SVP, Business Development
Adam spent the last decade leading global business development for new technologies in the energy industry.
At Vionx Energy, a vanadium flow battery company, Adam led sales and developed multi-MW projects in partnership with Siemens and Starwood Energy.
Prior to Vionx, Adam was VP of Business Development at SustainX where he led first market partnerships in Korea and Japan and raised over $20M in equity from GE, Rockport, Polaris, and others.
VP, People, Culture & Diversity
For over 30 years, Natalie has led finance and administration teams for a wide variety of mid-size companies. Most recently, she was the VP of Finance and Administration for Boston Metal where she oversaw the finance and human resource functions of the company through its first phase of growth.

Guillaume Lambotte, PhD
VP, Research & Development
Guillaume leads the R&D and steel program teams at Boston Metal. As one of the earliest employees, Guillaume has been instrumental in growing the molten oxide electrolysis technology from the lab-scale to the industrial-scale.
Guillaume brings a decade of high temperature metallurgy experience with a focus on computational thermodynamics. He was previously a production manager in the aluminum industry with Alcan. Guillaume received his PhD in Metallurgical Engineering from Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal and completed an MIT postdoc related to MOE.
Director, Supply Chain
Greg joined Boston Metal in 2020, bringing over 15 years of operations leadership experience. Most recently, Greg worked for Bloom Energy, a solid oxide fuel cell energy company, where he led the procurement division from startup through IPO and partnered with high-volume contract manufacturers to support aggressive business growth. Greg has also led global sourcing and engineering design activities at Pratt & Whitney, Collins Aerospace, and Huntington Ingalls.
