2013 sees the introduction of a new training programme by CEMEX UK, Leaders in Development, to help create the next generation of CEMEX business leaders.

Three talented employees have been selected to take part in the one year programme, in which they will gain extensive and fundamental knowledge of the business and develop a multi-functional perspective. With this grounding it is hoped to create a mobile talent-pool feeding into senior management positions of the future.

The three employees have come from across the CEMEX business. Tom Colley is a former batcher at CEMEX Middlesborough concrete plant. Previously he worked as a transport planner for a haulier company.

Richard Allen was a sales agent at the CEMEX Customer Service centre in Rugby and has completed a City and Guilds in concrete technology. He also taught sport at a local grammar school.

Scott Jones, based in Liverpool, was a Business Performance Analyst in CEMEX Readymix and has a BA Hons degree in Business and Economics.

Each trainee will be assigned a mentor and programme coordinator to help implement an individual development plan. Over 2013 they will spend time within each of the business areas including operations, strategic planning, human resources and procurement.

 “This scheme is fundamental to our future business. We provide vital building materials to the construction industry; it is a complex business in which the products cement, concrete and aggregates are used in significant quantities every single day.

“Concrete, for instance, is the most used man-made material in the world and has technological advances on a regular basis. It shapes our built environment, as could our Leaders in Development when they become the new CEMEX senior managers.

“This programme will give Richard, Scott and Tom the insight they need to develop as leaders and to contribute to our society” comments Mike Collins, Vice President , Human Resources.
