"We are confident that Belloc will be successful in leading the special steel business in North America and help us continue building a strong presence in the region. We also thank Marcucci for his leadership and dedication and wish him all the best in his retirement,” Gerdau’s CEO Gustavo Werneck said.

Marcucci will continue working at the company through the end of the year to ensure a smooth transition for all Gerdau’s stakeholders.
