Nucor said Douglas J. Jellison plans to retire as executive vice president on June 8 after more than 33 years with the company. Randy J. Spicer will be promoted to EVP effective May 12.

Jellison began his career at the Charlotte, N.C.-based steelmaker in 1990 as materials manager at Nucor Bearing Products. He then served in a variety of roles before being promoted to EVP in 2021.

“I am incredibly grateful for Doug’s contributions over the last three decades. Throughout his career, he influenced a broad spectrum of Nucor’s businesses,” Leon Topalian, Nucor’s chair, president, and CEO, said in a statement on Friday.

Filling the position will be Randy J. Spicer who began at Nucor in 2004. He currently serves as president of Nucor Tubular Products.

“Randy is a talented leader whose 20 years of Nucor experience help make him well-positioned to take on this challenging role. We look forward to his contributions to the executive leadership team,” Topalian said.
