Aggregate Industries appoints new Managing Director for Aggregates Division

July 2017

Aggregate Industries, part of the LafargeHolcim Group, has appointed Mike Pearce as the Managing Director of its Aggregates division, as the company looks to cement its position as the UK’s leading construction materials supplier.

Mike has held senior commercial and operational roles in Aggregate Industries since first joining in 1986, and moves into the role from his previous position as Commercial Director, which he has held since July 2015. As Managing Director for Aggregates he will focus on four of the company’s core pillars: customer service, health and safety, innovation, and sustainability.

With operations up and down the UK, Mike will oversee the work that the team is doing to ensure that everything Aggregate Industries does is with the customer in mind – how the company can best serve them and add value. Mike also has a responsibility to ensure the business acts responsibly and sustainably in each and every one of the communities that it is part of.

Health and Safety is at the heart of the company’s philosophy, which was recognised when Aggregate Industries was shortlisted as a finalist in the H&S Excellence category at this year’s Construction News Awards. With nearly 50 quarries in the company’s portfolio, Mike will be responsible for the daily welfare of hundreds of operatives and visitors to those sites, to ensure every employee and visitor leaves as healthy as they arrived.

Mike’s vision for the company is to focus on its innovation and the way it can be brought to market. He plans to take full advantage of parent company LafargeHolcim’s world-class research and development facilities. With a rapidly changing industry, and ever-increasing challenges facing the sector, being able to innovate is what enables Aggregate Industries to offer its customers world-leading solutions and products.

Commenting on his appointment as Managing Director of Aggregates, Mike Pearce said:

“Having been with Aggregate Industries for most of my career, I have witnessed the company’s ability to adapt to challenging market conditions, and it’s this agility that makes it the market leader it is in the mineral products industry. I will ensure that we continue to invest in our people, invest in our sites and innovate and to provide our customers with unrivalled products and services.”

François Petry, CEO of Aggregate Industries, comments: “I am delighted to appoint Mike as Aggregate Industries’ new Managing Director for Aggregates. Mike has been a valued member of the Executive Committee for many years now, and brings with him a wealth of experience, both operationally and at a strategic level, that will prove invaluable in leading the division.”
