Changes in Group Management of LafargeHolcim

In the course of strengthening its market focused and agile management organization, LafargeHolcim promotes its Legal and HR functions to the Executive Committee. In addition, the corporate business function Growth & Performance will be organized into three Centers of Excellence.

Feliciano González Muñoz, Head HR, is appointed member of the Executive Committee. A Spanish national, he has worked for more than 11 years in senior HR roles with the company. He will focus on building a high-performance culture and developing talents globally.

Keith Carr, Head Legal and Compliance, is appointed member of the Executive Committee. A British national, he has joined LafargeHolcim in 2017 and his nomination is reflecting the company’s focus on further building a culture of integrity and compliance.

The Corporate Growth & Performance function currently led by Urs Bleisch will be organized into three Centers of Excellence which will directly report to the Region Heads. This will lead to a more agile organization, closer to the markets and providing strong global platforms for sharing best demonstrated practice.

Urs Bleisch has decided to step down from his current Executive Committee position. He will support the transition to the new organization and will be responsible for selected initiatives.

The changes are effective as of January 1, 2019.

Jan Jenisch, CEO: “I very much welcome Keith and Feliciano to the Executive Committee. These appointments highlight our increased focus on people and integrity and will allow for a good balance between support functions and business operations in the Group Management. The change in the corporate functions brings them closer to the markets and pushes for a stronger culture of performance and innovation.”

As a result of these changes, the Group Management of LafargeHolcim will consist of the following members:

  • Jan Jenisch, CEO
  • Géraldine Picaud, CFO
