September 30, 2014, Zurich, Switzerland – Urs Bleisch,
Corporate Functional Manager and member of Senior Management of Holcim Ltd, has
been nominated member of the Holcim Executive Committee. He will keep his
current responsibilities for Holcim Technology Ltd, Holcim Group Services Ltd,
and the project management office of the Holcim Leadership Journey.

 

Alain Bourguignon, currently Area Manager in charge of
Canada, UK, and USA, and member of Senior Management of Holcim Ltd, supported
by Marc Soulé, currently Lafarge’s Senior Vice President Performance
Management, will be seconded to the joint Divestment Committee that was
established by Holcim and Lafarge in the context of their planned merger.

Advertisment

 

In their new roles, they will conduct management
presentations to potential buyers of the assets Holcim and Lafarge proposed for
divestment. They will also prepare the option of divesting these assets,
including the option of separating these out in a single package, either in
Europe or worldwide. In this specific context, should managerial resources be
required, Alain Bourguignon would be proposed for the future CEO role and Marc
Soulé for the future CFO role.

 

Holcim and Lafarge have previously announced their intention
to make substantial divestments in connection with the overall merger process.
Different options for how these divestments should be executed are currently
being considered and discussed with the regulatory authorities and with
potential buyers. Today’s announcement should not be taken as indicating that
either Holcim or Lafarge would prefer one option over another. Any option
considered will be subject to the approval of regulatory authorities and the
completion of the proposed merger between Holcim and Lafarge, and will be
carried out in the framework of the relevant social processes and ongoing
social dialogue with the employee representatives' bodies.

 

As a consequence, Roland Köhler, member of the Holcim
Executive Committee currently in charge of Continental Europe, will also take
over responsibility for the UK. The enlarged region will be named ‘Europe.’
Andreas Leu, member of the Holcim Executive Committee currently in charge of
Latin America, will in addition assume responsibility for USA and Canada. The
enlarged region will be named ‘Americas.’

 

All nominations are effective October 1, 2014.
