CEO of Woodie’s owner Grafton Group resigns

The chief executive officer of builders’ merchant Grafton Group will step down later this year.

Avin Slark, who held this role for 11 years, will leave the company at the end of the year. In addition, he will step down from his position as CEO on December 31.

The Grafton Group, which owns the Woodie’s and Chadwicks chains in Ireland, said a process to appoint a successor will begin shortly, along with the support of an executive search firm.

“It is with a heavy heart that I have made the decision to leave the company, but am confident that this is the right time for a new CEO to lead the company as Grafton enters its next phase of growth and development,” said Mr. Slark .

The group’s chairman, Michael Roney, said that Mr. Slark had made an “outstanding contribution” to the company through his leadership.

“Under his leadership, the group has continued to expand its geographic footprint and has been transformed into a portfolio of high quality and more profitable businesses with excellent market positions and strong growth prospects,” he said.

Mr. Slark has overseen the development of the group’s Dutch business as well as the company’s entry into the Nordic region with the acquisition of a new platform in Finland.

“He has also driven initiatives to expand the market positions of our established UK and Ireland businesses both organically and through acquisitions in a now more digitalised environment with an increased focus on sustainability opportunities,” added Mr. Roney.

Grafton Group will release its first half trading update on July 12.
