PITTSBURGH, Sept. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- United States Steel Corporation (NYSE: X) today announced the promotion of Michael N. Meyers to the position of general manager-service centers, electrical, agricultural & industrial equipment in the company's flat-roll products commercial organization. Meyers will replace George H.

Two years later, he was named director of marketing for construction sales in Birmingham, Ala. Meyers returned to Pittsburgh in 2003 when he was promoted to his most recent post, director of industry marketing, where he was responsible for customer- based marketing activities for U. S.

Meyers earned bachelor's degrees in business and economics from Lehigh University in 1974. He is active in the American Iron and Steel Institute's market development efforts and is the 2007 chairman of its Construction Marketing Committee.
