Oficemen names Víctor García Brosa as new president
12 September 2019

Spain’s cement association, Oficemen, has appointed Víctor García Brosa as its new president. Mr García Brosa is currently deputy general director of Cementos Portland’s managing board. A chemical engineer by training, he entered the cement industry in 2005, when he took up a post in Portland Valderrivas’ strategic planning unit. In 2015 he was appointed director general of the FCC subsidiary.

He will succeed Jesús Ortiz, who will step down after a two-year tenure at the helm of Oficemen.

Mr García Brosa warned of the "uncertainty" that surrounds "the future of the cement industry in the country" in a business-as-usual scenario. "The electrical energy consumed by our cement plants is between 20-30 per cent more expensive than in France or Germany, a situation that now adds uncertainty about the interruptibility of service and new electrical tariffs," he added.
