“Ladd has been an exceptional leader over the last four decades,” commented President and CEO Leon Topalian. “He has made outstanding contributions throughout his career to our company’s unique culture, to our strong record of profitable growth and to taking care of our customers. Most importantly, Ladd never wavered in his commitment to safety. On behalf of the Nucor family, I want to thank Ladd for his leadership and his lasting contribution to the continued success of Nucor. We wish Ladd a long and happy retirement.”
