Duncan Magrath, FD of Balfour Beatty, is set to become the newest addition to
the prestigious list of FTSE 100 finance directors if the engineering company
replaces HBOS in the top flight index.
Stock Exchange officials are preparing to fill the void left by HBOS merging
with Llloyds TSB and it is believed Balfour Beatty is in pole position to
replace the bank.
Magrath, a chartered accountant and a graduate engineer, joined Balfour
Beatty as deputy FD from Exel plc, where he was director of investor relations
and financial strategy.
