 U.S. STEEL GROUP ANNOUNCES PERSONNEL MOVES
 PITTSBURGH, Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Thomas J. Usher, president of


the U.S. Steel Group of USX Corporation (NYSE: X), today announced several personnel moves at the executive level of U.S. Steel.
 Keith K. Kappmeyer is retiring from his post as U.S. Steel's vice president-technology to accept an executive position with another area company. Paul J. Wilhelm has been named vice president-technology and management services, and Bruce A. Haines has been named vice president-sales.
 In his new post, Wilhelm will report to Usher with responsibility for research, purchasing, traffic, development engineering, and electrical and process control engineering. Wilhelm, 49, assumes his new position after serving as general manager-tubular products for the last five years. "Paul Wilhelm has demonstrated effective management leadership throughout his career," said Usher, "and we're confident that he will bring that same degree of skill to his key new areas of responsibility."
 Haines, 47, who has been vice president of purchasing and traffic for U.S. Steel since 1987, "returns to the commercial department, where he previously served in a variety of sales and marketing functions," Usher said. "He brings to his new position a broad commercial background as well as useful experience in operations and purchasing activities," Usher said. Haines will have sales responsibilities for all of U.S. Steel's product lines, reporting to Reuben L. Perin, executive vice president-commercial.
 "Keith Kappmeyer is leaving U.S. Steel after more than 34 years of distinguished service to this company and the industry," Usher said. "We are grateful for his contributions and we wish him continued success in his future endeavors."
 A Pittsburgh native, Wilhelm began his U.S. Steel career at the National (McKeesport, Pa.) Plant, after earning a degree in mechanical engineering from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1964. He held a variety of tubular operating posts at National, Texas Works, and headed the construction of the seamless pipe mill at the Fairfield (Ala.) Works. He later ran the pipe mill and in 1986 was named general manager of Fairfield Works. He held that position until his promotion as general manager of tubular products in Pittsburgh in late 1987.
 Haines, a native of Martinsville, N.J., earned a degree in metallurgical engineering from Lehigh University and an MBA from the University of Pennsylvania. He joined U.S. Steel in 1967 at the Homestead (Pa.) Works, where he held a variety of posts before moving into market research at Pittsburgh headquarters in 1974. After assignments in New York district sales, corporate planning, and pipe products he was named district sales manager in Houston in 1983. In 1986, Haines became general manager-tubular products in Pittsburgh and the following year assumed the post of vice president-purchasing and traffic.
 Kappmeyer was reared in Chicago Heights, Ill., and earned bachelor's and master's degrees in ceramic engineering from the University of Illinois. He also holds a master's degree in management science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he was a Sloan Fellow.
 He joined U.S. Steel in 1957 at the firm's research laboratory in Monroeville, Pa., and moved through a series of promotions. He was named director-research, steel in 1981, and in 1983 he became vice president-technology, steel and related resources. He was named vice president-research & technology in 1986, became vice president-engineering & research in 1988, and was named to his latest post with U.S. Steel Group in 1991.
