The three articles included in this unit focus on representations of what can be called ‘Mexicanidad’.

Situational analysis CEMEX is one of the world’s largest supplier of building materials (US $15.14 bln sales in 2011). The Mexican company founded in 1906 has long been a local, Mexican player but since 1992 it has stepped on an exponential „road” to become global. A key instance for this has been the appointment of Lorenzo Zambrano to be the CEO and Chairman in 1985. With his in-depth knowledge of the Monterey based company (grandson of founder and went through the ladder till becoming CEO), extensive business management skills (MBA, US universities), and openness to high-tech solutions, computer aided business (CEMEXNet) CEMEX acquired and developed the skills necessary to outperform its rivals in size, quality, and profitability. Success can be rooted to the strategy that CEMEX has been focused on emerging markets where profitability was higher versus developed markets.
