Former Lafarge Cement Zimbabwe CEO Precious Murena has described her 10-year stint at the firm as an “incredible” journey.
The executive made a ‘shock’ exit from the cement manufacturer last week after 18 months at the helm to pursue new interests, according to company chairman Kumbirai Katsande.
Writing on LinkedIn, Murena said it has been a decade of “transformation, innovation, and growth”.
“The last two years have been exhilarating. I relished the opportunity of churning out new cement and Dry Mortar products, rolling out cutting-edge digital solutions, new construction technologies, building mass affordable housing units, and building new manufacturing plants to tap into the growth of the Zimbabwean market,” she said.
“I am blessed to have worked with an exceptional team that believed in the ambitious vision we were gunning for. The Lafarge Zimbabwe team is a passionate and relentless winning team. I will always remember how the team rallied together when the chips were down…..Fighting to win like there is no tomorrow. Thank you for the memories.#headbowed.”
Murena made history by becoming the company’s first female CEO when she was appointed last year.
