This role is central to our goal and a champion of the repositioning of Lafarge Concrete to reflect the changing ambitions of our building community. Designers, builders, and developers are shifting how they build to compete in an environment with accelerating sustainability, community, and business demands.
The Innovation Manager will collaborate with our building community to derive, present, and deliver a new path that makes Lafarge Concrete the clear choice to partner with and different from the industry. The framework for the approach will be based on sustainable commercial success to allow for continuous re-investment in solutions for our customers.
This role is expected to lead a movement to differentiate the Lafarge Ready Mix Concrete organization within a competitive industry and to shift Lafarge’s concrete to the center of a sustainable approach to building.
