Camilo Restrepo has been appointed the new Vice President of Cementos Argos' Caribbean and Central American regional division, the company announced yesterday.

Mr Restrepo began his career with Cementos Argos in 2005 as a research and development analyst and subsequently became an environmental professional and R&D Manager. In 2012 he was appointed as the company's Vice President of Innovation and has since achieved many milestones, including the launch of Argos Center of Innovation (see: International Cement Review, February 2016).

Commenting on Mr Restrepo's progression through the ranks, Jorge Mario Velasquez, president of Cementos Argos, said: "I am pleased to see the professional development of Camilo, a partner who embodies the values of Argos' culture."

Mr Restrepo studied Environmental Engineering at the School of Engineering of Antioquia (Colombia) and holds a Masters degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of Maryland (USA). He is currently completing his MBA at the Goizueta Business School of Emory University, located in Atlanta, USA.
 
In his new role for Argos, Mr Restrepo replaces Mauricio Ossa, who was recently named CEO of Odinsa. "We thank Mauricio for having contributed to the growth of this region, which now generates about 20 per cent of the proceeds from Argos and represents much of the multiculturalism of our company," Mr Velasquez added.
