Mr Blaffart will report to the company’s chairman and chief executive, Lakshmi Mittal.

Mr Mittal said:

“HR is an important and strategic function and Henri’s experience made him a prime candidate for the role.  He is a highly experienced professional with in-depth knowledge of both HR and operations that are very relevant for an industrial company such as ArcelorMittal and I look forward to working with him.”
