Laing investments head to leave

16 May 2017 Laing O’Rourke’s chief officer for investments and corporate finance is to leave the company, Partnerships Bulletin understands.

Ceri Richards, who is responsible for treasury, investments (which includes its PPP business) and real estate, will leave Laing O’Rourke at the end of July.

Laing has refused to comment on the change, however it is understood that she is unlikely to be directly replaced, with the three areas of the business under her control likely to be transferred to individual heads of treasury, investments and real estate.

Richards will take a few months out from working to decide what her next career move will be.

In March, it was revealed that Grenville Riley, strategy and investment lead for Europe & Canada at Laing O’Rourke was leaving the company to take up a role at a PPP investment firm in Vancouver.
