As the chief accounting officer for the company, Darragh will be responsible for U.S. Steel's global financial accounting, reporting, and analysis functions.

Darragh joined U. S. Steel in 2006 as director of external reporting and advanced through a series of increasingly responsible roles within the finance and accounting organization. In 2010, she served as executive director of finance at the former U. S. Steel Serbia facility in Smederevo. Upon her return to the United States in 2012, she held leadership roles within benefits accounting and analysis before her appointment as acting controller in 2014.

Prior to joining U. S. Steel, Darragh served in a variety of accounting and finance roles at PPG Industries, including as a Sarbanes-Oxley specialist following the enactment of SOX in the early 2000s. She began her career as an accountant at PwC before advancing to a manager role at EY.
