New group areas – new managing board members

In its meeting on 09.10.2015, the Supervisory Board of HeidelbergCement has set the course for a generation change on the Managing Board. In the context of the long-term oriented succession planning and the necessary reorganisation of the Group areas due to the intended acquisition of Italcementi, the Managing Board agreements of ­Daniel Gauthier and Andreas Kern, which will expire on 30.06.2016, will not be extended. At the same time, three new members were appointed to the ­Managing Board as from 01.02.2016 and a new Managing Board function was created for the Group area Africa-Eastern Mediterranean Basin.

New members of the Managing Board will be: Hakan Gurdal from ­Turkey, currently President of the SBU Cement of Sabanci Holding, Jon ­Morrish from the UK, currently ­Regional President South in North America, and the Australian Kevin Gluskie, currently CEO of Australia as well as Malaysia and Hong Kong. All three have many years of experience in the business lines and international markets of ­HeidelbergCement.

Due to the icreased number of Group countries after the closing of the Italcementi acquisition, HeidelbergCement will be divided into five Group areas at Managing Board level:

Western and Southern Europe (Dr. Dominik von Achten, Heidelberg)

Northern and Eastern Europe-Central Asia (Dr. Albert Scheuer, Heidelberg)

Africa-Eastern Mediterranean Basin (Hakan Gurdal, Heidelberg)

North America (Jon Morrish, Dallas)

Asia-Pacific (Kevin Gluskie, Singapore)

The areas of responsibility of the Chairman of the Managing Board, Dr. Bernd Scheifele, and Chief Financial Officer, Dr. Lorenz Näger, remain unchanged.
