Executive Vice President of Global Building Products of CRH, plc
Bob is currently the Executive Vice President of the Global Building Products Division of CRH. Previously, he was the former CEO of Allied Building Products, one of the largest wholesale distributors of building products in North America.
In 1985, Bob joined Allied Building Products, which was originally a family business started by Bob’s father in the early 1960s. In 1996, following the decision to sell the family business to CRH, an international building materials company, Bob joined CRH and ultimately assumed the role of COO in 2000 and CEO in 2009. After 22 years, a strategic decision was made to divest of CRH’s distribution business, and Bob and his team lead the sale of Allied to Beacon Roofing Supply, a public company, in January 2018. After a brief transition period with Beacon, Bob returned to CRH as Executive Vice President of Strategy and Development for the Global Building Products business.
Bob recently served on the board of Henry Company, a leading North American manufacturer and supplier of roofing and building envelope products and systems, and is a member of the CRH Building Products leadership team and CRH Senior Leadership Council. Bob received a BA in Finance from Syracuse University.
