CRH has announced the appointment of Richard Boucher to its board as a non-executive director. Boucher, a former CEO of Bank of Ireland Group, took up the positive at the building materials multinational from 1 March.
Boucher is an Irish citizen with experience in the financial services. Before his role at the head of Bank of Ireland Group, he held a number of management roles at the company, as well as with Royal Bank of Scotland and Ulster Bank. He is also a past President of the Institute of Banking and of the Irish Banking Federation.
Boucher currently works as a consultant for Fairfax Financial Group, whose African investment arm last year made a bid for control of South African cement producer, PPC. CRH was also a contender for PPC, although the South African company eventually remained independent.
