U. S. Steel Vice President Leonard Chuderewicz Retires


United States Steel Corporation (NYSE: X) announced today that Leonard H. Chuderewicz, vice president- diversified businesses, will retire at the end of September after serving the company for 32 years. His responsibilities will be assigned to other company executives.

"Len's steelmaking and business expertise have helped to keep U. S. Steel in the forefront of the steel industry," said U. S. Steel President and Chief Operating Officer John P. Surma. "His leadership, commitment to excellence and strong work ethic will be missed."

Chuderewicz, 54, began his career with U. S. Steel in 1971 as an operating trainee at Irvin Works near Pittsburgh. He was promoted to turn foreman the next year and advanced through several foreman and general foreman positions in various areas of the plant before he was named process engineer in 1983. He was named area manager of galvanizing and terne coating in 1984, and was promoted to division manager-rolling in 1985.

From 1988 to 1998, Chuderewicz served in several leadership positions at three U. S. Steel joint venture operations: plant manager of Double Eagle Steel Coating Company in Dearborn, Mich., a joint venture with Rouge Industries Inc.; president of USS-POSCO Industries in Pittsburg, Calif., a joint venture with Korea's Pohang Iron & Steel Co. Ltd; and president of USS/KOBE Steel Company, in Lorain, Ohio, U. S. Steel's former joint venture with Kobe Steel Ltd. of Japan.

Chuderewicz was named general manager of Gary Works in 1998, a position he held until 2001, when he was promoted to vice president-raw materials at Pittsburgh headquarters. In March 2003, he was named to his current position, vice president-diversified businesses.

Chuderewicz holds a bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering from the University of Pittsburgh and master's degree in business administration from Duquesne University.
