New board appointments at Gallagher Group
Steve Hollingshead joins as non-executive director to support company’s next phase of development
THE Gallagher Group have appointed Steve Hollingshead as a non-executive director to support the next phase of development at the family-owned quarrying, civil engineering, building and property business.
Mr Hollingshead (pictured), former chief executive of J Murphy & Sons, will join existing non-executive director Paul Collins to assist chairman Pat Gallagher, chief executive officer Nick Yandle and the management team in developing future strategy and plans for the Group.
In addition, Catherine Rossiter will join the Group from Laing O’Rourke in June 2018 as group finance director. Long-term group finance director Tom Corkery will work with Ms Rossiter during a planned transition period to conclude the current financial year, which ends 30 September 2018.
Mr Corkery will then step away from his day-to-day role at the end of 2018 but will remain active as an independent advisor to the Gallagher family.
Gallagher Group chairman Pat Gallagher said: ‘It is an exciting time for the Gallagher Group. We are celebrating 45 years of successful operation in 2018 and can rightfully be proud of our business performance. However, that success has always been built on continually looking to, and planning for, the future.
‘Having non-executive directors on board of the calibre and experience of Steve Hollingshead and Paul Collins, to help the management team and many of the broader Gallagher Group team develop the next chapter in the business’s development, is important for us.
‘Similarly, we are delighted to be welcoming Catherine Rossiter to the Gallagher Group with a clear, planned transition for Tom Corkery into an independent advisory role to the Gallagher family later this year.’
