The president of the National Confederation of Construction (CNC), Juan Lazcano, will not continue to lead the employers after transferring his decision to the Council not to opt for re-election in the next internal elections that will take place on March 18.
Lazcano, in turn president of the Construction Labor Foundation and a member of the Executive Committee and the Board of Directors of the CEOE, has indicated that “closes a cycle” after twenty years at the head of the business organization. Lazcano wanted to wish the best for those who take the lead at CNC “in the belief that they will be able to count on a very capable team of which I am very proud and grateful.
After thanking and congratulating Lazcano’s work, the CNC’s Governing Council also agreed during the meeting to open the internal electoral process. Until March 11, any member belonging to the General Assembly, the supreme decision-making and governing body of the confederation, may present their candidacy. A week later, on the 18th, the elections will be held.
Twenty years of service
During Lazcano’s twenty years of service at the head of the CNC and its permanent presence in the Executive Committee of CEOE -and vice-president of this during a legislature-, he has dedicated all his capacities so that the business sector can develop its activity “in the best possible framework of market freedom, social peace and sustainable progress of companies and workers.”
