James Kirsch, Cliffs' chairman of the Board, said, "I am pleased that Steve is joining Cliffs' Board.  He is a proven leader and brings forth exceptional experience with large international construction projects.  Steve's strategic counsel will be important to our board as we execute future expansion and growth plans."   

Mr. Johnson began his engineering career in the construction industry when he joined Fluor Corporation, an international engineering, procurement, construction, maintenance (EPCM), and project management firm in 1973.  He spent nearly a decade working on major oil and gas projects in various project management leadership roles.  By 1989, Mr. Johnson was appointed director of project operations whereby he was responsible for overseeing several major international projects in the energy, chemicals, and commercial construction sectors. Over the next decade, he held several senior executive positions which involved leading a business operation in Alaska, a new business role for its infrastructure business, and corporate senior vice president responsible for global development, marketing and strategic planning.

In 2001, Mr. Johnson joined Washington Group International as senior executive vice president and had oversight for six business units.  He worked closely with the company's board of directors on business development and strategic issues.  He was instrumental in turning around the business that was eventually sold.
