The group's expanded executive committee will comprise senior executives from both Breedon and Hope and from outside. Pat Ward, group chief executive, said, "We're fortunate to have been able to draw on considerable experience and deep industry knowledge from both companies, and externally, in assembling our executive committee. I believe we have selected a strong team to lead the combined business, which will enable us to continue delivering an outstanding performance in the future."
Executive Chairman, Peter Tom CBE
Group Chief Executive, Pat Ward
Group Finance Director, Rob Wood
Chief Compliance Officer, Ross McDonald
Group Human Resources Director, Stephen Tagg
Chief Executive – Breedon Southern, Tim Hall

As previously announced, following completion Amit Bhatia, currently Hope's chairman, is expected to join the Breedon Board as a non-executive director.
Those members of Hope's executive committee who are not joining the senior team of the enlarged group will remain in their current roles until completion and continue to assist with the smooth integration of the business.
Pat Ward added, "Our pre-acquisition integration planning is on track and, subject to CMA clearance, we anticipate being able to complete the acquisition of Hope later this summer. I'm looking forward to welcoming our Hope colleagues to the Breedon group very soon."
