Ecocem Ireland Ltd, Ireland’s premier producer of high performance, low carbon cement, has appointed Annemarie Harte (pictured) as Managing Director of the Irish business. Annemarie is taking over the role from Micheál McKittrick, who is moving to a new post as Ecocem’s Managing Director for Northern Europe with responsibility for the Irish, UK and Benelux markets.

Appointed at a time when the company is continuing to expand both domestically and internationally, Annemarie will oversee the day-to-day operations of the Irish cement manufacturers operations in both Ireland and the UK. Annemarie will also be responsible for the launch of new product solutions, being developed by the Ecocem Innovation team, to the marketplace.

Established in Dublin in 2003, Ecocem now has 30 employees in Ireland and the UK. Ecocem Ireland is a subsidiary of Ecocem Materials, who also own and operate plants in France (two) and Holland, as well as having import terminal facilities in the UK and Sweden. The group’s annual capacity is 2.5 million tonnes and their cementitious products have been used in prestigious projects all over Europe such as the Tour Odeon in Monaco and Grand Paris project in France. It has also been used extensively in Ireland in projects such as the Convention Centre Dublin, the Aviva Stadium and the Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown Lexicon.

Annemarie was previously the CEO of Hardware Association Ireland (HAI), the representative body for 370+ hardware and DIY retailers, builders merchants, and manufacturers / distributors. She has also held a number of other senior roles, including Consultant with the Royal Life Saving Society, CEO of Rotary International and Manager of Dún Laoghaire Rathdown Chamber of Commerce.

Her new position at Ecocem leverages her knowledge and experience of public and private sector operations, gained over a 20-year career. An advocate of sustainable construction, Annemarie is a perfect fit for a firm that has heralded sustainability as a core value since its inception.

Speaking about her appointment, Annemarie Harte said: “Ecocem is a genuinely progressive, customer focused business, on a mission to reduce carbon emissions and I am delighted to take on this role to further drive delivery of these services. I look forward to further expanding Ecocem’s business both domestically and internationally while continuing to develop our growth within the Irish market.”
