Item 5.02
Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On May 23, 2011, L. B. Foster Company announced that Stan L. Hasselbusch, President and Chief Executive Officer, plans to retire on December 31, 2011.  The Company also announced that the Chicago based firm Crist/Kolder Associates has been retained to lead the search for Mr. Hasselbusch’s successor and Mr. Hasselbusch has agreed to remain through the transition.  The search process is on-going with the focus not on timing, but rather on finding the right candidate.  Based on current timing, it is unlikely that the search process will be completed by December 31, 2011.  Mr. Hasselbusch has therefore agreed to remain the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer until his successor is duly appointed by the Board of Directors and has taken office.




Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.

L.B. Foster Company
