In a move to broaden its leadership roles and responsibilities as it looks to the future, Boral Ltd has announced changes to its senior executive team. The changes will take effect on 1 March 2019.
Current Chief Executive of Boral Australia, Joe Goss will move to a senior advisory role, reporting to CEO and Managing Director of Boral, Mike Kane.
Executive General Manager for Western Australia Building Products and Major Projects, Wayne Manners will become President and CEO of Boral Australia.
Ross Harper, who is currently Executive General Manager of Cement, will become Group President of Operations. In this role he will be responsible for Boral Australia and Boral North America, as well as Group HS&E. Harper will work closely with both Manners and David Mariner (President and CEO of Boral North America) in this role.
Ros Ng, who is current Chief Financial Officer and Chair of USG Boral, will have an expanded role as Group President of Ventures and Chief Financial Officer. This includes group strategy and M&A, as well as a broader responsibility for USG Boral and Meridian Brick joint ventures. In this role, Ng will work closely with Frederic de Rougemont (CEO of USG Boral) and Chris Fenwick (CEO of Meridian Brick) to deliver the strategy and results of the joint ventures.
Further to these changes, current Executive General Manager of New South Wales for Boral Australia, Greg Price will take on an expanded role. This will include responsibility for Boral’s Project Management Office, which manages major projects.
“These changes recognise the skills, capabilities, and track record of key executives to deliver value to the Boral business and our shareholders,” said Mike Kane, CEO and Managing Director of Boral. “These new and expanded roles will create opportunity for deeper operational development and leadership. This is an important evolution in our successful senior executive development programme, which has been in place for several years. It is about ensuring Boral is well positioned for an orderly succession of the CEO role in the coming years.”
Commenting on Joe Goss’ transition to a senior advisory role, Kane said, “I want to thank Joe for his tremendous commitment and leadership as Chief Executive of Boral Australia over the past six years. Under Joe’s leadership, the division has delivered strong financial and safety improvements and has seen a strengthened organisational culture, including a clear commitment to safety, customers, and continuous improvement.”
The board has stated that Kane will continue in the role as Boral’s CEO and Managing Director for another two to three years. In the meantime, the board will continue to develop Boral’s senior executives to support internal candidacies for consideration of key roles in the future.
