Noriko Solomon, General Manager: Aggregates
Noriko joined Lafarge South Africa as General Manager: Aggregates in April 2016.
Prior to joining Lafarge, Noriko was employed by Aveng Grinaker-LTA, where she held various leadership positions, the last one being Operational Executive, where she oversaw projects of approximately R1,5 billion.
A qualified Civil Engineer, Solomon has overseen key projects including Kusile Power Station, upgrades on the N1 (Free State) and the rehabilitation of a section of the N12.
In her new role, she is responsible for overall business processes, performance improvement and strategic direction of the Aggregates product line.
Her appointment means that two-thirds of Lafarge South Africa's senior management team is female. This is an achievement, particularly in the construction and building materials sector which has traditionally been very male-dominated.
