Jay Moreau has transitioned from Martin Marietta senior vice president of Operations Services to LafargeHolcim U.S. Aggregates and Construction Materials chief executive officer. He will oversee one of the top producers in ready mixed concrete, sand & gravel, crushed stone and asphalt—encompassing Aggregate Industries management and sister operations brought under one umbrella following Lafarge North America and Holcim (US) Inc. parent companies’ 2015 merger.

“Jay has a proven track record in this industry, and his expertise and strong focus on commercial growth and operational excellence will be valued contributions,” says LafargeHolcim Region Head, North America René Thibault. “Having started his career in commercial roles, we know he will bring strong leadership to the organization and drive continued growth across our U.S. business.”

Moreau rose through the Martin Marietta ranks to regional vice president, general manager and division president leading into his most recent position. He succeeds Guy Edwards, who as part of late-2018 LafargeHolcim management changes returned to the United Kingdom as Aggregate Industries chief executive officer.
