HOUSTON, US/LONDON, UK: LyondellBasell said that Holcim executive Thomas Aebischer will join the company as executive vice president and chief financial officer (CFO) effective 1 January.

Aebischer served in a variety of positions, including CFO, over a nearly 20-year career with Holcim, one of the largest cement, concrete and aggregates companies in the world. Holcim merged with Lafarge in 2015.

As LyondellBasell’s CFO, Aebischer will be nominated to serve as a member of the company’s management board and will report directly to Bob.

“Aebischer is a highly experienced and accomplished leader who brings a global perspective, deep knowledge of financial markets and significant experience at the executive level of large, multinational companies. He will be a tremendous asset as we continue to execute our long-term growth strategy,” said Bob Patel, CEO, LyondellBasell.

“LyondellBasell’s transformation into one of the premier companies in the petrochemical industry is impressive,” said Aebischer.
