Australia: Cement fibreboard maker James Hardie has picked its president of international operations Jack Truong to succeed Louis Gries as its new President and CEO. Dr Truong, who currently heads the firm's Asia Pacific fibre cement business and the Europe building products unit, will become global president and CEO for a six-month transition period as Mr Gries winds down his 13-year spell in charge. A former chief executive of Electrolux North America, Dr Truong has held his current role since April 2017.

“Jack offers the ideal combination of commercial expertise, operational excellence, and leadership in order to continue to grow the business and maintain the industry-leading performance, across the multiple geographies established by Louis over a long period," said chairman Michael Hammes.
