Filiberto Ruiz has been promoted to president and chief executive officer of Holcim (US) and Aggregate Industries (US), succeeding Bernard Terver, who transitions to chairman of domestic operations and continues as a Holcim Ltd. executive committee member.

A 26-year Holcim Ltd. veteran, Ruiz has held a range of group management, production, sales and marketing positions, serving as Holcim (US) deputy chief executive officer since August 2012. “As we look to the future, it is clear [he] is the right choice to lead both organizations,” says Terver, who was appointed Holcim (US) CEO in 2008 and Aggregate Industries (US) CEO in 2010. “Through his leadership we will continue to develop the next generation of leaders from within the organization, maintain our focus on the communities we operate in, the environment, and our commitment to delivering the highest quality products and services.”
