U. S. Steel Appoints Leslie J. Broglie General Manager-Procurement


PITTSBURGH, July 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- United States Steel Corporation (NYSE: X) today announced the appointment of Leslie J. Broglie as general manager-procurement. Broglie replaces Thomas A. Coughlin, who was recently named general manager-materials management. Broglie's responsibilities include overseeing U. S. Steel's global procurement activities for all energy, maintenance, repair and operating (MRO) supplies, contract services, and other commodities that support the company's domestic and European operations. He reports to Christopher J. Navetta, senior vice president-procurement, logistics and diversified businesses.

Broglie, 56 and a native of Pittsburgh, earned a bachelor's degree in commerce and engineering from Drexel University in 1974. Following graduation, he joined U. S. Steel as a management trainee in the sheet and tin operations at Mon Valley Works' Irvin Plant near Pittsburgh. From 1975 to 1995, he advanced through increasingly responsible positions in the plant's cold reduction and hot strip mills as well as its APEX and special processing unit.

In 1995, Broglie moved into U. S. Steel's commercial area after being appointed manager of sales and technical services for United States Steel International at Pittsburgh headquarters. He was transferred to U. S. Steel Kosice in Slovakia in 2001 to serve as general manager of sales, and in 2002, he advanced to managing director of sales and marketing. Broglie returned to Pittsburgh headquarters in September 2003 after accepting his most recent position, general manager-tubular products.
