U.S. Steel President and CEO David Burritt will headline the Arkansas Economic Development Foundation (AEDF) Luncheon on April 6 at the Statehouse Convention Center in Little Rock.
David Burritt joined U. S. Steel in 2013 and was appointed president and CEO in May of 2017. Burritt leads the company’s business operations in the United States and Central Europe. In addition to his role with U.S. Steel, Burritt serves on the board of directors for Lockheed Martin, National Safety Council, and worldsteel.
