Astute, hard-living mining magnate made Noranda into a resource giant
Over a span of nearly four decades, he turned the company into one of the world's largest resource-based conglomerates, writes Sandra MARTIN. By the time he was through, he had helped increase assets from $700-million to $11-billion and become a very big man on Bay Street
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S12
A man who loved a balance sheet and who dedicated his working life to building Noranda into a diversified resources-based conglomerate, Alfred (Alf) POWIS was a new kind of mining executive when he became president of the company in 1968. Instead of clawing his way up the mine shaft and into the executive suite, he began as a mining analyst in the insurance business. While he wasn't an M.B.A. graduate, he thought like one. "He was one smart guy and he did a tremendous job for Noranda. He was a shooter," said long-time colleague, geologist and business executive William (Bill) James.
"He was a bridge between the business sector and the public sector, and he was a very influential and positive one," said Tom Kierans, chair of Council, Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council. "That's not to say he didn't understand the mining business. He did."
Mr. POWIS also enjoyed a party as much as a director's meeting. An inveterate smoker, and a man who was known to take a drink, he had enormous stamina and drive and loved to be the last man standing, or playing the piano, at social gatherings.
Alfred POWIS was born in Montreal in 1930, the eldest of two sons of Alfred and Sarah (née McCULLOCH.) His father, who was in the insurance business (Chubb), was a whiz squash player, and his mother, a homemaker, was a talented pianist. He grew up in the tony English-speaking enclave of Westmount, playing sports (especially tennis), practising the piano and attending local public schools.
Part of the generation that was too young to fight in the Second World War, he graduated from Westmount High School in 1947, went immediately to McGill University, where he earned a bachelor of commerce degree in 1951, and then to a job as a mining analyst at Sun Life Assurance Co. of Canada. In 1953, he married Shirley HALDENBY, the daughter of an executive at Dominion Securities. Their eldest child, Tim, now a television producer, was born in 1955.
The insurance business led Mr. POWIS to Noranda (now Falconbridge) headquarters in Toronto. In 1955, Mr. POWIS made an appointment with John Ross Bradfield, intending to quiz the mining company's president about Noranda's financials on behalf of his own investor clients at Sun Life. During the interview, Mr. POWIS stumped Mr. Bradfield with so many tough questions that "he felt he better hire the guy," according to Mr. James.
Mr. POWIS took the job, doubling his salary from $300 to $600 a week, and moved his family to Toronto. He and his wife subsequently had two more children, Nancy and Charles (Chuck). His rise at Noranda under Mr. Bradfield, his mentor, was meteoric. In 1958, he was assistant treasurer of the company; 10 years later, he was appointed president and chief executive officer, making him, at 38, one of the youngest chief executive officers in the country. "When I was a kid, every year there seemed to be another announcement of a promotion," his son Tim said in an interview this week.
From then until the mid-1980s, Noranda opened and acquired more than 40 mines, including Mattagami Lake Mines and Brunswick Mining and Smelting, Canadian Electrolyte Zinc, Hemlo Gold Mines, and Noranda Aluminum. In 1977, the same year that Mr. POWIS became chair of the board of Noranda in addition to president and chief executive officer, he divorced his wife and married his secretary, Louise FINLAYSON.
During Mr. POWIS's 40-year tenure at Noranda - he stepped down as chief executive officer in 1990 and chair of the board five years later - the company became one of the world's largest producers of zinc, copper, nickel and aluminum and diversified into forest products and operations in Canada, the United States and Europe and natural gas fields in Alberta and British Columbia. Assets increased from $700-million in 1968 to $11-billion in 1995, according to a citation for Mr. POWIS in the Canadian Mining Hall of Fame.
And yet, such growth has a price. A resources-based company such as Noranda had its share of suitors and predators - especially when the economy flagged. Mr. POWIS "was an exceptionally capable executive" who "knew a great deal about all aspects of his far-flung business," said former Noranda shareholder Conrad Black in an e-mail message.
"I thought he was too preoccupied with who his shareholders were and whether he would retain independence, when his role should have been doing all he could for the share price. He also had great difficulty with the cyclicality of all the resource businesses he was in. When base metals and oil and gas were up, forest products and precious metals would be down, or some such thing. He was a brilliant managerial executive, but a rather impetuous strategic and financial strategist. I always found him a very intelligent, witty, and agreeable companion [and] always a good man to join for dinner or a glass of whisky."
In October of 1979, Brascan acquired Conrad Black's 11-per-cent stake in Noranda, tried to up its ownership to 20 per cent and asked for two seats on the board of directors and one on the executive committee. "We were trying to assert, what we thought was our right to representation on the board, and he resisted that with great charm and effectiveness for some time," said Senator Trevor Eyton, then a principal in Brascan. "He was a very likeable person and highly intelligent. He knew where everybody was buried and he knew all of the facts."
Mr. POWIS "resisted" or outmanoeuvred Brascan's overtures for about two years by increasing its share offerings (and thereby diluting Brascan's holdings in Noranda) and by acquiring half of MacMillan-Bloedel (now Weyerhaeuser), the giant British Columbia forestry-products company. Finally, Brascan joined forces with Caisse de dépot, a Noranda shareholder in Quebec, and formed a new company called Brascade, which owned slightly more than 21 per cent of Noranda's shares.
Armed with this financial battering ram, Brascade had an acrimonious showdown with Mr. POWIS in August of 1981. "Finally, he succumbed and we had the representation we thought we were entitled to," Mr. Eyton said. According to Patricia Best and Ann Shortell in The Brass Ring: Power Influence and the Brascan Empire, that included six seats on the board. But that concession didn't occur until after Mr. POWIS had taken Mr. Eyton into the boardroom, shown him the 12 directors' chairs and told him there was no more room at the table. To which Mr. Eyton says he replied: "We were quite happy to sit in the second row so long as we got in the same room as everybody else."
Over the next few years, which were very tough times in the resource industries as Canada weathered a deep recession in commodity prices, combined with high interest rates, Mr. Eyton came to know Mr. POWIS as a colleague rather than an adversary, from sitting around the (expanded) board table and visiting mine sites that came complete with tours and dinners with the locals. "He always took great pleasure in arriving at these receptions early and being the last to leave, but he'd be the first one at the bus at 7 a.m. the next morning, even though he probably had two or three hours less sleep than any of us," said Mr. Eyton. "I always used to marvel at his physique. It had to have been a very strong one and he must have had very good genes, because he smoked continuously and he drank his share and more," he said. "He had tremendous stamina, great endurance and a very strong will."
Even though Mr. POWIS had been forced to put an extra leaf in the board table, he and his two closest associates, Adam Zimmerman (a chartered accountant from Clarkson Gordon who joined Noranda in 1958 as assistant comptroller and worked as executive vice-president of forestry and aluminum) and Bill James (a consulting geologist who joined the Noranda board in 1968 and began working as executive vice-president of mining in 1974), retained their jobs.
Running Noranda and its satellite companies was more than a full-time job, especially in lean times. "This is no longer a business about acquisitions, but a business of survival," Mr. Kierans, then president of McLeod Young Weir (now ScotiaMcLeod) remembers Mr. POWIS saying at Noranda's annual meeting in 1984. But Mr. POWIS also found time to serve on a number of industry, corporate and broader public boards.
Catholic in his interests and open-minded, he was big on public policy, big as a founding member of the Business Council on National Issues (now the Canadian Council on Chief Executives), big as a founding member of the C.D. Howe Institute, big as a founding member of the British North America Committee and, of course, as anybody in the resources industries would be, big on free trade with the U.S.
"He was very literate in both a financial and economic sense. He had a good mind and he liked to spar and was intellectually curious," said Thomas d'Aquino, president of the Canadian Council on Chief Executives.
In 1977, Mr. POWIS and William (Bill) Twaits of Imperial Oil brought a group of business executives together to form the Business Council on National Issues to forge connections between business and government and to have a share and a voice in the making of public policy. "At the time, the concept of corporate and social responsibility had not yet been born, so it was unusual for people to raise their noses above running their individual companies to raise the biggest issues of the day," said Mr. d'Aquino. "It was a call to arms for chief executives saying this is going to be our organization. That was groundbreaking and what made Alf POWIS a pioneer."
Darcy McKeough, treasurer and economics minister under Ontario premier Bill Davis, said: "Noranda and the mining industry generally knew that they had to get along with government and with the communities they operated in, so he took an interest in public policy, probably with regard to the mining sector, but larger than that as well."
Mr. POWIS had got his feet wet in public policy discussions with government in the early 1970s when he served on the Ontario Committee on Government Productivity. The committee's "massive report" was largely implemented after Mr. Davis became premier in 1971, according to Mr. McKeough.
"Alf got a tremendous insight into the working of the provincial government from that and a great interest in it, and he was also involved in the Mining Association [he served as president of the Mining Association of Canada from 1974 to 1975], and then forestry, and that gave him a window into Ottawa," said Mr. McKeough, who served as a member of the board of Noranda after he left politics in 1978.
Having seen Mr. POWIS from both sides of the public-private divide, Mr. McKeough said he "behaved exactly the same way - interested, knowledgeable and trying to see both points of view." Assessing him as a person of great business and personal integrity, Mr. McKeough said: "The mining industry didn't have the best reputation in those days and Alf was way out in front, insuring that they did."
The last years were not kind to Mr. POWIS, as his body succumbed to a lifetime of hard work, smoking and drinking. He was in a wheelchair when he attended the funeral of Carter, his younger brother, in July. Nearly three weeks ago, he was admitted to hospital after a fall at home.
Alfred (Alf) POWIS was born on September 16, 1930, in Montreal. He died in Saint Michael's Hospital in Toronto of emphysema on October 10, 2007. He was 77. He is survived by his wife, Louise, three children and six grandchildren. He also leaves his first wife, Shirley.
A private family funeral is planned, followed by a celebration of his life at the York Club in Toronto on October 23.
