U.S. Steel announced two executives will swap roles, resulting in new leadership that will cultivate one of its flat-rolled segment's largest customer bases.

The Pittsburgh-based steelmaker, one of Northwest Indiana's largest employers, tapped Scott Buckiso to oversee Automotive Solutions and James E. Bruno to lead European Solutions.

“These changes are part of our company’s normal executive development process," U.S. Steel President and CEO David Burritt said. "The new roles will expose Scott and Jim to different leadership and business opportunities while helping our company increase our executive bench strength by further enhancing their capabilities.”

Buckiso is now senior vice president–European Solutions and president, U. S. Steel Košice. He started at U.S. Steel in 1990 as a management associate and served tenures in Serbia, Slovakia, Canada, Mon Valley, Great Lakes and Gary Works.

Bruno now serves as senior vice president–Automotive Solutions. He was hired at U.S. Steel in late 2014 as senior vice president–Automotive Solutions, a commercial entity within the company's North American flat-rolled products operating segment that encompasses most of its Northwest Indiana operations.

Bruno will relocate to the Slovak Republic.
