Irish-based building materials group CRH has announced that board member Rebecca McDonald has decided to step down from her role in the company with immediate effect.

CRH chairman, Nicky Hartery, said, “CRH has benefited significantly from Rebecca’s international and industry experience during her time as a non-executive director of CRH.

“Due to family commitments she is retiring from the board."

The company recently announced a 35% increase in year-on-year revenues for the first six months of 2016.

CRH said the increase came as a result of growth in its underlying businesses, as well as the positive performance of CR Laurence and LafargeHolcim assets, which it acquired a year ago.
