HEIR TO ARCELORMITTAL EMPIRE

ADITYA Mittal, the son of Britain’s wealthiest man Lakshmi, yesterday moved a step closer to succeeding his father as chief executive of the world’s largest steelmaker. He has been handed control of the biggest and most problematic unit – Flat Carbon Europe instead of Flat Carbon Americas, as well as remaining chief financial officer, putting him on course to head up ArcelorMittal when his father, Lakshmi Mittal, 60, steps down.
