Multiplex’s UK finance director has resigned after only assuming the position and joining the board in June last year.
According to Companies House, Zahida Hanif’s director function ended on August 9th. A multiplex spokesperson confirmed Hanif’s departure, saying: “Zahida Hanif has stepped down from the UK finance director to spend time with her young family before considering her next move.”
He said a replacement will be announced shortly.
Before her promotion, Hanif had been CFO of the law firm for Europe since April 2018.
She was promoted to the board of directors at construction company 22 Bishopsgate, when Chief Operating Officer Callum Tuckett was appointed to the board of Multiplex Construction Europe and commercial director Paul Maguire left the company.
Before joining Multiplex, Hanif spent more than 10 years at Lendlease in various finance positions.
Hanif’s departure comes a week after Laing O’Rourke confirmed an announcement by Companies House that Ray O’Rourke’s daughter, Céire, has been removed as director of the company.
A spokesman said Céire O’Rourke had not left the company but had left the board of directors.
She said: “In April it was announced to the company and our customers that Céire had made the decision to step down from her role as Customer and Market Director and concentrate on other tasks within the family business.
“As a result, she no longer needed to be listed as director of operations and our lists at Companies House have been updated.”
She was on the board since December 20, 2019.
