François Laporte is the new Marketing & Sales Director of Holcim Romania, after Adrian Porfir took over a similar position at Holcim Russia, earlier this October. François Laporte was the Sales Director of GEOROC division within Holcim France-Benelux for the last three years.
Born in France, François Laporte is aged 36, is married, and has two children. The new Marketing & Sales Director of Holcim Romania started his professional career at Holcim France-Benelux in 1996 as Sales Engineer within the Customer Technical Service. During the period 2000 - 2003, he worked as Manager of the French Cement Technical Assistance Department, later on being appointed as Sales Director of GEOROC division.
"I am very happy with all the achievements of my new team and I will try to contribute to the further development of the company by combining my French expertise with the vast Romanian experience of my colleagues. I hope our common Latin root will help us enjoy a pleasant and confident atmosphere both at work and in our relation with the clients. One of my main priorities is to maintain the satisfaction of our clients through best products and related services," said François Laporte, Marketing & Sales Director, Holcim Romania.
François Laporte graduated from the University of Paris and received a master in Physics and a PhD in Geology. In 2002 he completed a Master in Business and Administration degree (MBA) at the International School of Management, Paris and New York.
The results obtained by Adrian Porfir, the former Marketing & Sales Director of Holcim Romania, recommended him for a similar position at Holcim in Russia. Adrian Porfir joined Holcim Romania in 2000 as National Sales Manager and in 2002 became Marketing & Sales Director.
"Holcim Romania meant for me a life-changing experience. It is incredible how important people with whom you work are. I had intelligent clients who were extremely demanding and I had the privilege to work with remarkable colleagues. If today we speak about achievements in Romania, this is due to the people I had the chance to work with. I leave Romania with regret but, in the same time, I must confess that Russia is a project which I really wanted, and I would like to thank those who took this decision. I wish success to François and his team," stated Adrian Porfir.
