Glencore’s former head of copper marketing, Nico Paraskevas, joined Open Mineral as a senior adviser after investing in the digital metals trading startup. Paraskevas, who left Glencore during a leadership reshuffle early last year, is joining the company alongside Kareem Barbir, formerly head of metals concentrates trading at Concord Resources, an Open Mineral spokeswoman said in a statement. She confirmed that Paraskevas — who had been one of the leading candidates to run Glencore before Gary Nagle took over — participated in Open Mineral’s latest funding round, without quantifying the stake size.
