ArcelorMittal Poland appoints new chairman

ArcelorMittal Poland (AMP) chief executive Marc De Pauw has also been appointed the company’s chairman. He replaces Geert Verbeeck who last month became chief operating officer of newly-formed ArcelorMittal Nippon Steel India.

De Pauw already replaced Verbeeck as AMP’s chief executive from 1 January (see Kallanish passim).

Additionally, Tomasz Plaskura, chief marketing officer East Europe – ArcelorMittal Europe Flat Products, has been appointed a member of AMP’s board of directors.

AMP said last month it plans to restart the hot-end at its Krakow steelworks in mid-March in order to supply slab for rolling at the group’s Gent works in Belgium (see Kallanish passim).
