Leon cements his position
Published: 02 June 2004

Chris Leon is the CEO of Cement Australia. On 2 June 2004, he celebrates the first anniversary of the merger that created Australia’s largest cement company. It is likely that he is thankful that he is not attempting the merger in 2004, given the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission’s (ACCC) attitude towards the proposed merger between Boral and Adelaide Brighton, which is likely to turn into a court battle. Leon says that the timing was fortuitous, and that the current regime at the ACCC is obviously revising many of the assumptions it held that allowed his merger to go ahead
