Left to Right: Elaine K. Wilkinson, Alan Goldberg, and Tonya Jones
Alan Goldberg, a 1958 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, served as a Marine Corps infantry officer for more than five years, before joining Commercial Metals Company, a conglomerate in the recycling, steel processing and copper tube manufacture business based in Dallas. At CMC, he focused primarily on exports to steel mills in the Far East. Goldberg’s experience and knowledge led him to CMC offices in San Francisco, Mexico City, Los Angeles and Hong Kong, rising to Assistant Managing Director of the Hong Kong Division. Returning to the United States in 1971, Goldberg was named vice president of LMC Corporation in San Jose, California, specifically in charge of sales. Later, after identifying a future need for silicon by the fledgling Silicon Valley computer firms surrounding him, Goldberg launched his own business, Silrec Corporation to fill that anticipated market niche.
Alan enjoys relaxing in Naples, Florida, where he is an avid golfer and fisherman. In Lexington, Kentucky, his base of operations for Silrec, he participates in multiple charitable golfing events and continues to oversee Silrec operations on a day-to-day basis. He is the father of two grown sons who reside in California.
Silrec’s Office Manager, Tonya Jones, earned her BA in History from the University of Kentucky. She has spent her career building customer and vendor relations, including 15 years in accounting administration and ten years in hospitality management.
