Adiós Jesus, Bonjour Michel!

Last week saw outgoing Country President, Jesus Gonzalez, pass the ball to our new CEMEX UK Country President, Michel Andre.  Michel tweeted that he is proud to be joining CEMEX UK, and this week is visiting a few sites to meet some employees and get a feel for our operations.  He is looking forward to visiting more sites over the coming months especially in parts of Great Britain he won’t manage to reach this week. 

Here is some background on Michel:

Michel Andre joins the UK business following seven years as Country President for CEMEX France.

He has worked for CEMEX France for a total of twelve years with senior roles in Strategic Planning and the Readymix business. Prior to joining CEMEX, Michel worked for Lafarge in the US and France and five years at PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Besides his role as Country President, CEMEX France, he was a board member and then President of the Unicem Association France, the National Union of Quarrying and Building Materials Industries representing 2,700 companies and over 1 million employees. The three year term as President finished in June 2017.

Michel commented: “I am looking forward to working with my new UK colleagues, with safety as my number one priority, growing the business and helping to build a Greater Britain.”
