Michael Haack has been named president of cement, aggregate, ready mixed concrete and wallboard producer Eagle Materials, and will maintain the chief operating officer title he has held since 2014. 

“Michael has distinguished himself across all of our lines of business,” says Eagle CEO Dave Powers. Expansion of his role “reflects the company’s significant growth in recent years and the opportunity to build our leadership capacity, as we extend Eagle’s track-record as the benchmark operating performer in the industry.”

Prior to Eagle, Haack spent 17 years at Halliburton Energy Services, holding successively senior operating positions, culminating with management of Global Operations for Sperry Drilling, a multi-billion dollar business in the Halliburton Drilling and Evaluation Division. He holds Master and Bachelor of Science degrees in Industrial Engineering from Texas A&M University and Purdue University, respectively, and an MBA from Rice University.
