Nicholas Hartery is an Irish businessman, the chairman of CRH plc. Nicholas Hartery was born in May 1951. He is the chairman of CRH plc since 2012 and a board member since 2004, and a non-executive director of Musgrave Group and Eircom.

A Chairman is needed with some vision and perspective, will not accept the status quo and just might strategically think about the organisation he will be running. How on earth a man running a concrete company turning over 87 BILLION with 87,000 employees will find time to worry about sectional timing in Tramore and over-watering in Kilbeggan is beyond me.

The last "busy" man that devoted plenty of time to this role was the favoured son Denis Brosnan. Unless Hartery has the significant backing of the multi-tentacled Coolmore operation he hasn't a prayer of making any significant impact. His profile coming in to the job is very low-key indeed - a few ponies with Mick Halford - and he certainly has never been heard from before with a single interesting or controversial opinion on the game. Expect more of the Joe Keeling approach which got us exactly nowhere.

What will his salary be?

His CRH function is non-executive. Other executives run the Company.

Directors receive €13k p.a. and JK - possibly paid a little more - took no remuneration during his term. One serves.

10 employees are paid in excess of 100k and the average salary of all others is 70k+.

Does not sound like the ideal person to help the struggling grass roots.

Non-executive director = the nice biscuits and explanations like "if you were actually here day-to-day, you'd see why we have to pull the stuff we do".
