“I am delighted to join the team Peter is building at Headwall, and I look forward to working with Headwall’s clients to deliver differentiated senior-level strategic advice,” said Danjczek.  “After several difficult years, the sentiment in the steel industry has turned far more optimistic, creating an opportunity for our clients to evaluate alternative strategies for growth.  I look forward to assisting Headwall’s clients by leveraging the breadth of our industry relationships, our in-depth sector knowledge, and our team’s financial acumen.”

Danjczek earned a Master’s degree in industrial management from Purdue University’s Krannert School of Management, a Bachelor’s Degree in mechanical engineering from Villanova University, and he participated in the University of Michigan’s Manufacturing Executive Program.  Danjczek twice received the prestigious AMM Advocate/Ambassador of the Year Award, as well as Villanova University’s Engineering Merit Award, ASME Outstanding Achievement Award, the Jefferson Technical College Partnership Award, and he was named by the Department of Energy Industries of the Future as a Hall of Fame Recipient.
