Moreau joins LafargeHolcim from Martin Marietta, a supplier of building materials, where he held positions including regional vice president & general manager, division president and most recently senior vice president of operations services.
He has a Bachelor of Science degree in business/pre-law from Juniata College, and also holds certificates of achievement from Georgia Institute of Technology and University of Virginia-Darden School of Management. He has participated in numerous industry organisations and intends to continue his involvement.
