FROM THE ARCHIVES

Big River Steel has reported the death, at the age of 68, of Chairman and CEO John Correnti, someone Site Selection interviewed multiple times over the years, beginning with a survey response in 1998 when he led Nucor. He later formed Big River Steel, a new $1.3-billion venture in Arkansas that Nucor leaders were not very happy to see arrive in the neighborhood. “John’s death came as a shock to the entire Big River Steel family,” said David Stickler, the company's newly appointed CEO. "Given the outstanding team of managers and operators John assembled, Big River Steel is well-positioned to not only complete the construction and start-up of our facility in Arkansas as scheduled, but to also pursue additional steel industry expansion opportunities as they arise.”
