Ecocem Ireland Ltd., Ireland’s premier producer of high performance, low carbon cement, has announced the appointment of Micheál McKittrick as Managing Director, Ireland & UK.
Micheál has been appointed to the Irish firm at a time of expansion both domestically and internationally. His role involves the management of all aspects of the Irish and UK operations.
A Chartered Engineer and graduate of Trinity College Dublin, Micheál previously worked in several senior roles with Atkins Consulting Engineers.
His new position in Ecocem leverages on his experience and knowledge obtained throughout his career to date. An advocate of sustainable construction Micheál fits very well into the firm where sustainability is at the core of its ethos.
Micheál’s appointment comes in the wake of the company’s further expansion into the UK market.

The firm will open its second import terminal in Sheerness in the UK in early April 2017, providing capacity to supply over 450,000 tonnes into the UK market.
