Blane A. Salvador, Vice President, will be responsible for the Titanium Segment and will continue to report to James L. McCarley, Executive Vice President of Operations. Mr. McCarley will be responsible for the Engineered Products and Services Segment.

CEO Comment

Dawne S. Hickton, Vice Chair, President and Chief Executive Officer of RTI, said, "The organizational changes are an outgrowth of RTI's move to transform itself into an integrated supplier of advanced titanium products and services across the entire supply chain. In recent years, RTI has invested more than $400 million in new plant, equipment and acquisitions to implement its strategy.

"Our new management and financial reporting structure better reflects the new RTI," Ms. Hickton said, "and it best aligns our resources to support RTI's long-term growth.
