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

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

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.
