The World Cement Association (WCA) announced that it has appointed Mohammed A. Al-Garni as vice president. As well as being a long-standing director and board member of the WCA, Al-Garni is chief executive officer of Saudi Cement Co.
“It is a great honor to be chosen as the new vice president of the World Cement Association and I am really excited to participate in helping it grow further, supporting the association in its role as the voice of the cement industry globally,” said Al-Garni.
Al-Garni has 35 years of experience in the cement sector and as a member of the National Cement Companies Committee has developed significant knowledge and managerial expertise in the cement industry. He was the project director for Saudi Cement’s largest cement manufacturing facility expansion project, wherein they successfully installed, erected and commissioned two lines of 10,000-tpd capacity, which was considered the largest project of its kind in the region at that time.
“We are delighted Al-Garni has accepted the vice presidency of the WCA,” WCA President Zhiping Song commented. “His appointment reflects the growing importance of Saudi Arabia in the global cement industry, as well as the WCA’s commitment to connecting the cement community in all countries across the world.”
