With approximately 25 years of experience in compliance, governance, public

Pohlmann has an extensive background in the resolution and remediation of
corporate ethics and governance issues on an international scale. He was the

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
