Harrington retired after serving more than 20 years with the company. He held the position of president and CEO since Jan. 1, 2010. According to the company, Harrington successfully steered the company through one of the worst economic downturns in recent history, allowing the company to capitalize on market recovery in the last few years.

Prior to this position, Morrish served as the president of Lehigh Hanson’s South region. He also held the positions of managing director of the Hanson cement business in the United Kingdom and managing director of Hanson Concrete.

In addition to becoming president and CEO of Lehigh Hanson, Morrish will also join the managing board of HeidelbergCement, effective Feb. 1, 2016.
