By Joe Malone10 December 2015

Anna Stewart, CEO of UK-based Laing O’Rourke, has stepped down with immediate effect due to ill health, says the company.

Ray O’Rourke, executive chairman, will now assume her responsibilities as CEO of the private contractor.

He said, “Anna’s medical treatment makes it impossible to continue with the full range of her extensive work duties and travel commitments.

“I can confirm that Anna will be continuing with the Laing O’Rourke Group and going forward will support me with a number of important strategic activities, which will be managed around her treatment regime.

“We, as a board, extend our very best wishes to Anna for a full and speedy recovery.”
