The Portland Cement Association (PCA) Board of Directors elected John Stull, president and CEO of Lafarge North America Inc., as chairman of the association during its recent Fall Board meeting in Scottsdale, Ariz. Cemex USA President Karl Watson, Jr. was named vice-chairman.

Stull takes over the chairmanship from Cary O. Cohrs, president of American Cement Co., LLC. “Under the guidance of Mr. Cohrs, PCA has continued as the leader and voice for the cement industry,” said Stull. “This is an important time for PCA to champion resilient construction, and advocate for critical national infrastructure funding, both which will ensure the vitality of the cement industry.”

In addition to being a long-standing member of the Board of Directors, Stull also co-chaired the manufacturing technical committee. In his role of chairman, he will also chair both the audit and compensation committees for PCA.

Stull first joined Lafarge in 1992 with an already strong industrial background, and spent his first nine years managing industrial operations in North America, rising to vice-president of manufacturing for all Lafarge’s U.S. operations in 2001. In 2007, Stull was promoted to regional president for Lafarge Group in Latin America and thereafter became Lafarge Group regional president for cement in Sub-Saharan Africa.
