Laing O'Rourke names new chairman

John Parker

Engineering and construction firm Laing O’Rourke has revealed former Royal Academy of Engineering president Sir John Parker as its new chairman.

Sir John will take up the position later this year after leaving his current chairman role at mining company Anglo American. He has been chairman at five FTSE100 companies.

“I am honoured to join such a progressive organisation, with compelling future plans,” he said.

“A culture of engineering excellence is deeply embedded at Laing O’Rourke. I have a deep respect for the organisation that Ray and Des O’Rourke built from scratch over the past 40 years.”
