FCC eyes new CEO

18 January 2013 Spanish construction firm FCC is expected to appoint a new chief executive officer next week.
The board of directors at FCC will propose that Juan Bejar replace current chief executive Baldomero Falcones, after five years in the position, according to local media.

Bejar is currently chairman of FCC’s subsidiary, Cementos Portland Valderrivas and Globalvia. Previously, he was the chairman at Citigroup Infrastructure Management and chief executive at Ferrovial and Cintra.

Should the appointment be confirmed, Bejar will take his position at a time when FCC is restructuring in order to meet the drop in its construction business and pay a €1.6bn debt accrued from its Austrian-based subsidiary, Alpine.
