United States Steel Corporation (NYSE: X) today announced the appointment of F. David Coleman to general manager-corporate diversity, effective March 1.

In this new position, Coleman, 54, will be responsible for advancing company-wide diversity and inclusion strategies. He will work closely with executive management and human resources staff to provide insight, resources, tools and actions to advance corporate diversity goals in important competitive areas for a new generation of employees. Coleman will report administratively to Tom Sterling, senior vice president-Human Resources & Business Services, and functionally to both Sterling and the Executive Management Committee.

Coleman joined U. S. Steel in 2004 as manager-insurance benefits for the United States Steel and Carnegie Pension Fund, the company's pension administration group. Prior to his employment at U. S. Steel, Coleman served as vice president of human resources at Ranpak Corp., a manufacturer of systems and materials for inside-the-box packaging applications, from 1995 to 2004.

In 1995, he retired from the United States Army as a Lieutenant Colonel. During his career in the Army, he served in several overseas assignments, including Korea and Germany; on the Pentagon staff; as a recruiter; and as director of the Personnel Management Office for the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) at Fort Campbell, Kentucky.

In 1973, Coleman graduated from the United States Military Academy with a bachelor's degree in engineering, and earned a master's degree in operations research from Case Western Reserve University in 1982.
