LafargeHolcim has promoted its legal and HR functions to the executive committee in a bid to strengthen its management organisation.
Feliciano González Muñoz, head HR, has been appointed a member of the executive committee, where he will focus on building a high-performance culture and developing talents. He has worked for the company for more than 11 years in senior HR roles.
Keith Carr, head legal and compliance, has been named a member of the executive committee as part of the company’s focus to continue building a culture of integrity and compliance. He joined LafargeHolcim in 2017.
Jan Jenisch, LafargeHolcim’s CEO, says: “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.”
Additionally, the company’s corporate growth & performance function currently led by Urs Bleisch will be organised into three centers of excellence which will report to the region heads. The restructure is expected to lead to a more agile organisation, closer to the markets and provide strong global platforms for sharing best demonstrated practice.
Urs Bleisch has stepped down from his position with executive committee, but will support the transition to the new organisation and will be responsible for selected initiatives.

- Jan Jenisch, CEO
