Marvin Calderon

Operations Director

Costa Rica

We guarantee a safe and healthy work environment for our people, and continually provide them development opportunities that are interesting and challenging. Team work capacity, leadership and the continual search for innovative business improvements and opportunities—are the key elements for achieving personal goals, and contributing to the company success.

Working for CEMEX gives me the opportunity to live with passion; on a daily basis I get to listen to the members of my team explain new value proposals to improve our productivity. I also communicate with colleagues around the world who have the same expertise in order to exchange points of view, information and knowledge; in my experience, my colleagues are always happy to share their expertise and informed opinions.

“I’m passionate about my work at CEMEX.”

My career at CEMEX began in 1999 with CEMEX’s acquisition of Cementos del Pacífico S.A., where I had worked in the maintenance department since 1985. CEMEX promoted me to Milling Manager, and the following year I became the Technical Services Manager, where I was responsible for providing maintenance support to our operations and new projects. A year after that I was named Production Manager for the Colorado Plant, and in March of 2003 I was then promoted to the position I currently hold: Director of Cement Operations for Costa Rica.

During my time as Director, the Costa Rican operations have achieved several notable accomplishments: We had the best safety record among the South America & Caribbean’s operations during the years 2003, 2008, and 2009; we significantly reduced carbon emissions by reducing the clinker factor; and in CEMEX’s Latin-American operations, we are the leaders in substituting alternative energy for traditional power.

It is inspiring for me to work in a business that it is constantly striving to reduce its footprint on the world. That it is not afraid to innovate and to take accountability for its people’s safety and development. As an operator this has inspired me to perform and proudly continue working at CEMEX.
