U.S. Steel Corporation (USS) has a new president.

On Tuesday, USS announced that Mario Longhi, who has served as the company’s president and chief executive officer (CEO) since 2013, has been replaced in the position by David Burritt.

Burritt will serve as president and as chief operating officer (COO). Longhi will continue to serve as CEO and sit on the Board of Directors.

Burritt previously served as the company’s executive vice-president and chief financial officer (CFO).

“In his new role, Burritt will have executive responsibility for all aspects of the company’s day-to-day business in the United States and Central Europe,” USS said. “He will continue to serve as CFO while the company undertakes a search to fill that role. Since joining the company in September 2013 as executive vice president and chief financial officer, Burritt has assumed increasing responsibility for commercial activities, plant operations and strategic planning.”

“Longhi will focus his time on the company’s strategic vision, which is critical given the increasingly competitive nature of the global steel industry,” USS added.

Prior to joining USS in 2012, Mr. Longhi spent more than 30 years in the metals industry, most notably in executive roles at Alcoa and Gerdau Ameristeel. Before joining USS in 2013, Burritt worked for 32 years at Caterpillar.
