When interviewed Mr Simon Towers acknowledged that it is the people that make the business what it is today. “You can’t get away from the fact that every individual is essential to the success of CRH. We have some great people with fantastic attitudes and a willingness to go the extra mile when needed. To say we are a reasonable sized business we try to keep things open, informal and always on first name terms. I personally detest company politics and I think that spills into the general culture of our business overall. That’s probably why if I was going to have a career in this industry, I can’t think of anywhere better than to have it here”
We wish them all a long and happy retirement.
