“I am excited to welcome Géraldine to LafargeHolcim,” says Jan Jenisch, CEO of LafargeHolcim. “She is an agile and successful CFO who has worked in the U.K., U.S., France and Switzerland. With a track record in delivering business results and restructuring within complex global business environments, she is the ideal person to join our executive team and drive the next phase of growth in the company.”
