At UK-headquartered engineering firm M J Gleeson roles have changed. The joint role of chief executive and chairman has been split. While Dermot Gleeson continues as executive chairman, David Eyre has taken on the post of group managing director — the first from outside the Gleeson family to have that role. Eyre was previously responsible for expansion of the group’s engineering operations, particularly in the water sector. His work will be continued by Bib Jukes, who has taken over Eyre’s post as managing director of the Engineering Division.
