Surma, would retire at the end of the calendar year.  Surma will continue as Executive Chairman until his retirement from the company and board.  Surma, a Pittsburgh native, joined the company in 1997 and was named CEO in 2006

With a retirement is always a promotion; Mario Longhi will become the new CEO of U.S. Steel.  According to the company’s website, Longhi joined U. S. Steel in July 2012 to serve as executive vice president & chief operating officer.  He was appointed president and chief operating officer in June 2013 and was elected chief executive officer in September 2013.
