SNC-Lavalin Hires Andreas Pohlmann Former Chief Compliance Officer Of Siemens

MONTREAL, Feb. 22, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - SNC-Lavalin (TSX: SNC) is pleased to announce that it has hired Andreas Pohlmann as its Chief Compliance Officer (CCO), effective March 1, 2013.

With approximately 25 years of experience in compliance, governance, public and governmental affairs, and as corporate counsel in the US and abroad, Mr. Pohlmann has an extensive background in the resolution and remediation of corporate ethics and governance issues on an international scale. He was the CCO at Siemens AG and oversaw the creation and implementation of its award-winning compliance and corporate governance system, which the company has called its "highest priority". Subsequently, he founded the well-respected consulting firm Pohlmann & Company - Compliance and Governance Advisory LLP. His widely admired approach to corporate governance has focused on transparency, responsibility, appropriate risk management, and respecting the interests of all stakeholders. Mr. Pohlmann has a Law degree from the University of Frankfurt and a Doctor of Law degree from the University of Tuebingen in Germany.

"We are extremely pleased to have someone of Andreas' calibre join our team as we work towards developing the best standards possible at SNC-Lavalin," said Robert G. Card, President and CEO, SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. "His experience on boards and his roles in Europe and in North America speak to his well-deserved reputation as a world-renowned leader in compliance and corporate governance. In addition, he has lived through experiences similar to ours, albeit on a different scale, so we are confident that his expertise will serve us well in the months to come as we move beyond the past and towards the type of world-class compliance system that he helped install at Siemens."

SNC-Lavalin's commitment to ethical behaviour and the highest standards in governance, compliance and accountability continues to be steadfast, and the hiring of Mr. Pohlmann is one more step towards this goal. The Company continues to improve and strengthen its processes across the organization. More information about how positive change is being implemented throughout the Company is available at
