Summit Materials has announced that its Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Douglas C. Ruah, will be leaving the company at the end of the year. Ruah’s responsibilities will be taken over by the company’s President and CEO, Tom Hill, until a replacement is appointed.
“The timing was tight for a change,” said Ruah in a statement. “I am looking forward to spending more time with my family. I wish my colleagues and the company the very best.”
During the search for a permanent replacement for Ruah, the three Executive Vice Presidents of the company’s operating segments will report directly to Hill, including Tom Beck, who heads up the company’s cement business.
Ruah has been Chief Operating Officer of Summit Materials since 1 March 2013, having joined the company in January 2012. He had previous worked at CRH subsidiary, Oldcastle, including as CEO and President as Shelly Co. Inc., Oldcastle’s operations in Ohio.
“Doug has been an excellent COO and trusted business partner,” said Hill. “I am grateful for his leadership in driving Summit’s growth over the past six years and building a strong foundation for our future.”
