Cumberland County-based Harsco Corp. today reorganized its companywide and division leadership to prepare for the company’s future and at least two pending retirements.

“This is about building the next generation of Harsco leadership to continue our global expansion and drive the business forward to a strong future,” said Ken Julian, a company spokesman.

Savatore D. Fazzolari, the company’s chairman and CEO, will once again add president to his title and duties, according to the company. Fazzolari has been chairman and CEO since the 2008 retirement of Derek C. Hathaway.

Prior to that, Fazzolari was the company’s president, chief financial officer and treasurer. The company’s board appointed him president in 2006. Fazzolari has worked for Harsco for nearly 30 years.

Geoffrey D. H. Butler had been filling the president position, but he plans to retire in June 2011, Julian said. Butler has assumed the role of vice chairman with the company, he said.

Stephen J. Schnoor, the company’s senior vice president and chief financial officer will add treasurer to his responsibilities, according to the company.

Richard A. Sullivan, the vice president of business transformation, will add the role of chief supply chain officer.

Richard C. Neuffer, who has announced his retirement for the end of 2010, will also become a vice chairman with the company. Neuffer was the CEO for Harsco Rail and Harsco Industrial.

Other changes include:

Galdino J. Claro will become executive vice president and group CEO for Harsco Metals and Harsco Minerals.

Scott W. Jacoby was named vice president and group president for Harsco Rail.

Scott H. Gerson will become vice president and group president of Harsco Industrial  and continue as chief information officer.

The company hired Han Jansen, formerly of Amsterdam-based Royal Philips Electronics, to be chief financial officer of Harsco Metals and Harsco Minerals.

Michael Cubitt was appointed chief financial officer of Harsco Infrastructure.

Harsco, with headquarters in Wormleysburg, provides services and products to businesses in the non-residential construction, steel and metals, energy and railway sectors.

The company’s stock is traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol HSC.
