Nucor Corp., the largest U.S. steelmaker by market value, said Chief Operating Officer John J. Ferriola will take over from Daniel R. DiMicco as chief executive officer on Jan. 1.
DiMicco, 62, who has led the Charlotte, N.C.- based company for 12 years, will become executive chairman, Nucor said in a statement.
“Nucor has taken a lot of care with this transition,” said Michelle Applebaum, managing partner at consultant Steel Market Intelligence in Chicago. “In my 30 years in the steel business, I've seen only a half-dozen visionaries of Dan DiMicco's caliber.”
Ferriola began his career with Bethlehem Steel Corp. in 1974 and joined Nucor in 1992 as manager at a Texas mill, Nucor said. He was appointed to the board of directors in 2011.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
