The Portland Cement Association (PCA) elected new leaders for its board of directors during a recent meeting.

Filiberto Ruiz was elected PCA board chairman. Ruiz is president and CEO of Votorantim Cimentos North America, and he served the last two years as PCA vice chair to outgoing chairman Ron Henley. Henley is president and CEO of Global Cement & Concrete of America.

“The Portland Cement Association plays a crucial role in the advancement of the cement and construction industries – not only in the U.S., but in partnership with other like-minded organizations around the world,” Ruiz says. “Their thought leadership, strategic research, outreach and advocacy efforts are all critical toward aligning cement and concrete producers and paving the way toward a more sustainable future. I’m humbled to have been selected to serve as PCA chairman and look forward to continuing to build upon the great work of all those who preceded me in this important position.”

In addition to Ruiz’s election, Massimo Toso was selected as PCA vice chair. Toso is president and CEO of Buzzi Unicem USA.

“Our industry is an integral part of tremendous mainstream events happening today in the U.S.,” Toso says. “We have an essential role in the rebuilding of America’s infrastructure, and we are bolstering our visibility in the global environmental arena, boldly setting a deadline for ourselves to dramatically curb our carbon emissions.”
