Max co-founded SigmaRoc plc in August 2016 and has since served as its CEO. In this capacity he developed and implemented the Invest Improve Integrate Strategy and platform-based business model of the SigmaRoc Group.

Prior to SigmaRoc, Max was strategic advisor to the CEO of LafargeHolcim Ltd (“LafargeHolcim”) Northern Europe, the world’s largest construction materials group. His role included responsibility for the merger of Lafarge SA and Holcim Ltd in the region involving the only Day 1 integration of the two businesses following the hive-down and integration of two large asset portfolios – a mix which included cement plants and down-stream aggregates and construction materials assets.
Prior to working for LafargeHolcim, Max worked in private equity at Luxembourg-headquartered The Genii Group, where he reported directly to its founding principals. Max holds a PhD in Financial Economics from University College London and Bachelor and Master degrees in both Civil Engineering and Financial Economics from University College London and the University of Brussels respectively.
