Titan Cement recognised as top company for leaders
Published: 02 December 2009

Titan Group, parent company of Titan America, was ranked number one in Europe and eighth in the world for 2009 in the prestigious “Top Company for Leaders" study, receiving a global distinction regarding the development of human capital and leadership competencies.

This ranking is the outcome of one of the most comprehensive studies of organizational leadership in the world, conducted by Hewitt Associates in partnership with The RBL Group - a strategic HR and leadership systems advisory firm - and Fortune magazine.

“Leadership is not generic and interchangeable,” says Titan Cement CEO Dimitri Papalexopoulos. “We invest the effort to tailor our people-development practices to the competences we need as well as to our values and our desired leadership principles. It has often been said that a crisis is a terrible thing to waste. The current financial crisis can be viewed as an opportunity to enrich managers’ leadership skills.”

More than 500 global companies were surveyed this year in search of the top businesses at attracting, retaining, and nurturing talent. An expert panel of independent judges interviewed a number of Titan America executives, including CEO Aris Papadopoulos and considered such specialized projects as the in-house Titan America Leadership (TAL) program. Winners were selected and ranked based on criteria including strength and depth of leadership practices, culture, examples of developing world class leaders, business performance and company reputation.
