USS Begins Search for New CFO

Written by Tim Triplett

U.S. Steel Corp. is beginning a search for a new chief financial officer after the resignation this week of Senior Vice President and CFO Christine S. Breves, who will continue to serve as Executive Vice President-Business Transformation while the company seeks her permanent replacement.

“Christie’s deep knowledge of the industry, leadership and superb insight have contributed greatly to U.S. Steel’s transformation into the future of steelmaking,” said U.S. Steel President and CEO David B. Burritt. “We have too much important work before us not to take full advantage of her capabilities. That’s why I’m so pleased that Christie has elected to remain for the full year and our Board of Directors has agreed to elevate her to Executive Vice President. I look forward to working with her directly in the coming months to further accelerate our Best for All progress.”

Since 2019, Breves has led all aspects of the company’s financial responsibilities, as well as the company’s procurement functions. Information technology and sales & operations planning functions were subsequently added to her responsibilities.

She joined U.S. Steel in 2013 as Vice President and Chief Procurement Officer. In 2017, she was appointed Senior Vice President-Manufacturing Support & Chief Supply Chain Officer.

Pittsburgh-based U.S. Steel supplies high-value-added steel products to the automotive, construction, appliance, energy, containers and packaging industries with annual raw steelmaking capability of 22.4 million net tons.
