In the course of strengthening its market focused and agile management organization, LafargeHolcim announced the promotion of 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. Changes are effective Jan. 1, 2019.
Head HR Feliciano González Muñoz and Head Legal and Compliance Keith Carr are both appointed members of the executive committee. González Muñoz is a Spanish national, who 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.
Carr is a British national, who joined LafargeHolcim in 2017 as general counsel. Prior to that role, Carr was general counsel for GE Power. His nomination reflects the company’s focus on further building a culture of integrity and compliance.
“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,” said Jan Jenisch, CEO of LafargeHolcim.
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.
Additionally, 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.
