Minucci, a native of the Pittsburgh area, received a bachelor's degree in metallurgy and materials science from Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa. in 1974.

He began his career with U. S. Steel in 1974 as Quality Assurance supervisor at the corporation's Fairless Works near Philadelphia, Pa.

In his new assignment, based at headquarters, Minucci will oversee the sales of U. S. Steel's domestic products to international customers.

"Carl's knowledge of U. S. Steel's domestic facilities and U. S. Steel Kosice's capabilities, coupled with his international experience from working with UEC, makes him a great choice to develop our growing international business," said Foster.
