Anna Stewart steps up as group chief exec at Laing O'Rourke

Laing O’Rourke chief executive and chairman Ray O’Rourke is to step down as chief executive in April next year.

Finance director Anna Stewart will take the group chief executive position, while O’Rourke remains as executive chairman. This will follow “a period of transition of responsibilities”.

“The shareholders and the group board have ensured that in selecting Anna as chief executive we will achieve the seamless continuity of strategic approach we were seeking,” said O’Rourke.

“Following a seamless handover of my chief executive duties to Anna, I will continue in the role of executive chairman, responsible for the leadership of the group board,” he added.
