LafargeHolcim makes changes to its executive committee

By |  August 8, 2016

LafargeHolcim-logoLafargeHolcim adjusted a few roles and responsibilities of its executive committee members.

Pascal Casanova, who is currently responsible for the Latin American region, will assume responsibilities for LafargeHolcim North America, including Mexico. Casanova will be responsible for LafargeHolcim’s North American and Mexican operations. He first joined the company’s executive committee in 2015.

Lafarge initially hired Casanova in 1999 as its technical director, and he was later appointed as the head of the company’s R&D and industrial performance of the roofing activity in the United Kingdom. Lafarge named him CEO of Lafarge France in 2012, and he took on responsibility for LafargeHolcim’s Latin American region in 2015 after the company’s merger.

Both Alain Bourguignon, currently responsible for LafargeHolcim North America, and Ian Thackwray, currently responsible for the Asia Pacific region, have decided to pursue new opportunities outside of LafargeHolcim as a result of the executive committee changes, the company adds.

In addition, LafargeHolcim added Martin Kriegner and Oliver Osswald to its executive committee. As of Aug. 5, the executive committee, chaired by LafargeHolcim CEO Eric Olsen, will include the following members:

  • Urs Bleisch, group head of performance and cost
  • Pascal Casanova, region head of North America and Mexico
  • Roland Köhler, region head of Europe, Australia, New Zealand and trading
  • Martin Kriegner, region head of India and Southeast Asia
  • Gérard Kuperfarb, group head of growth and innovation
  • Caroline Luscombe, group head of organization and human resources
  • Oliver Osswald, region head of Central and South America
