Meeting in Scottsdale, Ariz., the PCA Board of Directors elected Lafarge North America CEO John Stull as 2014-15 chairman, succeeding Cary Cohrs (American Cement Co.), and Cemex USA President Karl Watson, Jr., vice-chairman.

“This is an important time for PCA to champion resilient construction, and advocate for critical national infrastructure funding, both of which will ensure the vitality of the cement industry,” notes Stull, who in addition to being a long-standing director has co-chaired the PCA Manufacturing Technical Committee.

Over a 22-year Lafarge Group career, Stull has progressed through vice president and regional president roles for U.S., Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa businesses. He holds a chemical engineering degree from the University of Akron and is a Harvard Business School executive management program graduate.
