Pittsburgh-based United States Steel (US Steel) has recruited Duane Holloway to serve as senior vice president, general counsel, chief compliance officer (CCO) and corporate secretary.

Richard Fruehauf, who has been serving as interim general counsel and CCO, becomes vice president of strategic planning and corporate development. Holloway and Fruehauf both report to president and CEO David Burritt.

Suzanne Rich Folsom, general counsel, CCO and senior vice president of government affairs with US Steel, resigned from the company effective December 29, 2017.

At his new firm, Holloway has executive responsibility for all legal and compliance matters. Burritt says in a statement: ‘Duane joins us with a proven track record of leadership excellence while working for some of the world’s most recognizable brands. His approach to corporate law is grounded in collaboration and a belief that in-house counsel should safeguard the company’s interests while also working within the law to develop solutions that address critical business priorities.’

Holloway most recently served as executive vice president and general counsel for Ascena Retail Group, where he integrated multiple legal teams into one group and led the company’s litigation management process and integrated transformation program, according to US Steel. He has also served as vice president and deputy general counsel for CoreLogic, and as senior vice president and chief counsel for operations and litigation at Caesars Entertainment Corporation.

In his new role, Fruehauf is responsible for strategic planning and business development, innovation, governmental affairs, environmental affairs and sustainability and corporate communications. He joined US Steel in 2014.
