Stephanie Rauls
Vice President, Chief Accounting Officer and Controller
Novelis, Inc.

“Manufacturing remains the foundation of a strong economy and offers unlimited opportunities for innovation and challenging the status quo. Every day, we enjoy the privilege of partnering with our customers to make high-quality products that positively impact people’s lives and help shape a sustainable world together.”

When Stephanie Rauls joined Novelis, Inc. in December 2013 as Vice President, Global Tax, the division struggled with low morale and high turnover. She worked closely with team members, clients, customers and peers to completely rebuild the organization, while ensuring that her team was empowered and celebrated along the way. Thanks to Stephanie’s efforts, her team now performs at unprecedented levels and has led Novelis to capture tax opportunities that have contributed to record free cash flow and reductions in debt. In addition to generating powerful financial outcomes, Stephanie’s radical shift in team culture has proven invaluable to the company. In recognition of her impact, Stephanie was promoted Vice President, Chief Accounting Officer and Controller. 

Stephanie understands the unique challenges women face in the manufacturing environment and is a tireless champion of breaking down barriers and unlocking unrealized potential. She is an active proponent of mentorship and has guided countless men and women within Novelis and beyond. She shared her concept of encouraging others to create their own personal “Board of Directors” at Women in Novelis (WiN) workshops in both North America and Asia. Her concept has been so beneficial within Novelis, that she has also shared it with other female professionals through her leadership role with the Atlanta Women’s Foundation. 

Stephanie welcomes the opportunity to share her time and resources with those in need, both inside and outside of Novelis. She is active in Novelis’ annual giving campaign that benefits Habitat for Humanity, which in 2018 raised over $160K and built a home for a deserving local family. As a board member of CURE Childhood Cancer, Stephanie proudly advocates for the organization and raises funds and awareness to support childhood cancer research. She has earned the respect of others by humbly modeling her belief that being a leader means helping those around you.
