An FM Conway board member since 2011, Conway will now take over the chair position from her father, who died in March after a six-year battle with cancer.

Michael Conway held the role of chairman in the last years of his life, having served as chief executive for more than 40 years. 

He took over leadership of the firm from his own father, Frank, who founded the firm in 1961.

Joanne Conway said she was “honoured and privileged” to take on the role.

“I have had the pleasure of watching our great business evolve and adapt over the past 40 years under my father’s vision and I am proud of the business that we are today,” she said.

“We are a family business with family values working towards delivering the best solutions for all by using the safest, innovative, and most sustainable methods. And most importantly, with a workforce of people that care.”

Rhia Morgan will take over Conway’s role as managing director of aggregates and asphalt, having previously been commercial director.
