Harsco Taps Anshooman Aga as CFOWritten by Marybeth Luczak, Executive Editor
Anshooman Aga will take over as Harsco Corp. Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer on Aug. 16, succeeding Peter Minan; he becomes a member of the Harsco Executive Leadership Team.
Harsco has three divisions: Harsco Rail, a global supplier for railway track maintenance and construction; Harsco Environmental, a provider of material processing and environmental services to the global steel and metals industries; and Clean Earth, a provider of processing, treatment, disposal and recycling solutions for a range of complex waste streams.
Minan, who announced his retirement last December, will continue in the role of Special Advisor to the CEO, assisting with the transition. He started work at Harsco in 2014 after spending nearly 30 years with KPMG.
Aga will join Harsco from Cubic Corp., where he has served as Executive Vice President and CFO since October 2017. Not only has he led all finance functions in addition to manufacturing, procurement, IT, corporate development and real estate, he was instrumental in the completion of the May 2021 sale of Cubic to Veritas Capital and Evergreen Coast Capital Corp., an approximately $3 billion transaction.
Prior to Cubic, Aga was Senior Vice President and CFO of AECOM’s Design and Consulting Services business in the Americas. He also held leadership positions at Siemens, including CFO roles for the Energy Automation business based in Nuremburg, Germany; Siemen’s Rail Electrification; and TurboCare.
“Anshooman’s financial acumen, multi-function discipline and positive leadership style will make him a great fit for our organization,” Harsco President and CEO Nick Grasberger said. “I want to thank Pete for his many contributions and dedication to our company, and his willingness to delay his retirement to ensure a smooth and successful transition.”
