AFTER more than 20 years at Holcim (previously Holderbank), including more than 10 years of operating responsibility for Holcim (Schweiz) AG as well as responsibility for Central Europe, Kaspar E.A. Wenger is to take on a more strategic role.
In the framework of the progressing merger between Holcim and Lafarge, Mr Wenger will become designated chairman of the board of Holcim (Schweiz) AG with effect from 30 June 2015 and will hand over his responsibilities as area manager for Central Europe (Switzerland, South Germany and Italy).
