WE BELIEVE GARY HALVERSON IS THE RIGHT LEADER FOR CLIFFS AT THIS CRITICAL TIME
As part of its thorough search for a new CEO, which began in July of 2013, the Board engaged a leading independent executive search firm. The entire Board was engaged in the process and interviewed all finalist candidates. After an extensive review, the Board selected Gary Halverson as the best choice to lead Cliffs.
Gary has the insights and experience to lead the Company in this critical and volatile period and to create shareholder value, given his 30 years of experience in managing international large-scale, long-lived mining operations and understanding of the global commodities industry.
He has led business divisions similar in size and scale to Cliffs, most recently as the Interim COO of Barrick Gold Corp., the world's largest gold miner. He has extensive experience managing large annual operating budgets and capital projects, and has been successful in optimizing mines, objectively assessing troubled operations and executing projects on time and on budget.
Gary's experience includes a wide range of underground and open-pit mines from the construction and development phases through the end-of-life stage. He has successfully tackled many projects with complex operational and compliance challenges. Your Board strongly supports Gary Halverson and does not believe that Casablanca's goal of replacing him is in the interests of Cliffs shareholders.
WE Have ASSEMBLED a Strong Board THAT IS WELL MATCHED TO THE opportunities and CHALLENGES FACED BY CLIFFS
We have instituted a critical remake of our Board and senior management team, including therecent addition of four highly qualified directors: Timothy W. Sullivan, Mark E. Gaumond, Stephen M. Johnson and Gary B. Halverson.
