Heraty steps down as CEO of CPL Resources

Anne Heraty has stepped down as CEO of Irish recruitment company CPL Resources, with deputy CEO Lorna Conn named as Heraty’s successor.

Heraty will retain her role on the global board of Japanese group Outsourcing, which bought out the businesswoman and her husband’s shares in CPL for €110m (£93.3m) in January 2021, according to the Irish Times.

Heraty co-founded CPL in 1989 and became the first female CEO of an Irish publicly quoted company a decade later when she floated the business, the newspaper said. Outsourcing acquired CPL last January for almost €318m in an all-cash deal.

Conn, Heraty’s successor, joined the company in 2017 as CFO before her appointment as deputy CEO in April. Heraty’s husband, Paul Carroll, stepped down as a director and left CPL after the takeover was completed, the Irish Times said.

CPL, which has 15,000 employees internationally, is focused on providing temporary staff.
