A leadership transition is under way at Harsco Corp. The company recently announced Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Derek Hathaway will retire after the April 2008 annual stockholders meeting and Salvatore Fazzolari will become CEO Jan. 1.

Currently president, chief financial officer and treasurer, Fazzolari also is expected to be elected chairman after Hathaway departs. Since joining Harsco in 1980, he has served stints as director of auditing and corporate controller. Fazzolari has been a board member since 2002.
