Former University of Wolverhampton business degree student, Hervé Mallet has been appointed President and Chief Executive of McInnis Cement.
McInnis Cement is a privately-held Company with corporate headquarters in Quebec, Canada, and United States headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut. The Company’s plant in Port-Daniel–Gascons, Canada is one of the largest industrial projects currently under construction in eastern North America and McInnis is the first cement company to build a new plant that will serve Eastern Canada and New England in more than 50 years. McInnis Cement is constructing a deep-water marine terminal, adjacent to the plant, with plans to open other terminals strategically located in the U.S. and Canada. This will allow products to be shipped quickly and efficiently to markets along the East Coast and the entire perimeter of the Atlantic Ocean.
He said: “I am very pleased to join a company that is creating a world-class cement company, built on innovation and the strength of a strong and experienced cement team. I share with the company shareholders their vision of making McInnis an environmental and sustainable development leader in the industry, as well as an industry leader in customer service. I hope to position McInnis as a key company in the Gaspé area, but also as an important contributor to Quebec’s economic vitality, as it enters North American markets in the coming months."
The appointment is the result of an international recruitment that began late last summer. With an outstanding track record in the industrial sector, Mr Mallet has considerable experience in sales, marketing and operations. He was until recently Executive Vice-President – North America for Dynacast, a manufacturing company with 23 plants and 6,000 employees worldwide. As such, he oversaw eight production facilities in North America, delivering performances two times greater than the industry average.
Throughout his career, Mr Mallet has overseen acquisitions and integrations as well as turnarounds of plants and businesses. He is recognised for delivering solid operational and financial results, and for the performance of his sales teams. Mr Mallet is a graduate of the University of Wolverhampton having studied Business and Information Technology in 1993 and University of Brunel in England.
