After serving as the vice president for the past two years, Nieto is now taking over this leadership role for 2024 and 2025.

Jose Antonio Nieto is CEO of Putzmeister Iberica, a member company of the Spanish industry association ANMOPYC. His professional career in construction machinery began in after-sales service, joining Putzmeister as Head of Service in 1999 and progressing to Technical Director and COO. 

In addition to leading the Spanish subsidiary of the Putzmeister Group, he has been responsible for growing the underground business unit for tunnelling and mining within the group.

CECE says that Nieto’s focus for 2024 is to continue the work of his predecessors in remaining committed to helping CECE and the industry with its long-term target of decarbonization and digitalization.

Nieto added, “My mission as CECE President is continuing with this legacy, as well as pushing for and supporting current key topics for our industry.

“A key topic on the agenda is the implementation of the Cyber-Resilience Act and Data Act, which will have a significant impact on our long-term target of digitalisation. Another important issue for 2024 will be the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM), linked to the decarbonization target. This twin transition of digitalization and decarbonization is ongoing and needs additional support.”

In addition to this, Nieto’s main focus for 2024 is the implementation of new legislation. This follows the work undertaken during Alexandre Marchetta’s presidency to participate in discussions with legislators and inform the debate throughout the drafting processes. The next step is to guide and help members as legislation enters into force.
