organisations.

which he has navigated the Group through major transformations and his immense
contribution to Wienerberger's success. Due to his achievements, Wienerberger is
on an accelerated growth course." With Carlo Crosetto Wienerberger is
strengthening its Managing Board with a highly experienced top manager, Johnson
adds: "Carlo's appointment follows a robust and thorough succession planning
process, which enabled us to immediately replace Willy's unexpected early
retirement. Carlo's knowledge and wide industry background ideally complement
the collective skills of our Board team. With this team we are perfectly
positioned to successfully continue executing our value-creating growth
strategy."

Wienerberger CEO Heimo Scheuch also thanks Willy Van Riet: "Willy has been a
firm pillar of our company for two decades and has played a decisive role in
shaping our success as CFO since 2007. On behalf of the entire company, I would
like to thank him for his outstanding performance. Without him, we would not be
able to carry out the current growth opportunities. I look forward to continuing
the successful course with my colleagues and wish Willy and his family all the
best for the years to come."
