3sun Group, specialist provider of products and services to the global energy industry, has announced Glenn Cooper as chair of its board of directors.
Glenn takes over from Les Dawson OBE, who has stepped down to focus on other interests after three years.
A winner of several business awards, including the Sunday Times and PWC Profit track 100, the North West’s Power 100 that spotlights key influencers, Glenn brings extensive experience across a range of business sectors to the role.
He said: “3sun Group has built an envied reputation as a dynamic, solutions-focused, innovative and go-ahead company that is exporting its skills and services across the world. I look forward to working with Graham and the team in the company’s 10th year and sharing knowledge from a range of business areas to support 3sun Group in further growth, delivering the best possible products and services to its clients.”
Glenn added that his role would be to work closely with all stakeholders and “develop and grow value across our sectors, with commitment, focus and attitude being key drivers.”
Glenn’s leadership roles have been in engineering, oil & gas instrument and control systems, security, manufacturing and business consultancy. Three years ago, he was invited by the then Prime Minister David Cameron to be part of his Business Task Force.
Welcoming him, chief executive Graham Hacon said: “Glenn joins us with considerable experience across a range of business sectors”.
“I am looking forward to Glenn and his fellow board members playing leading roles in the new chapter of 3sun Group’s development.”
He paid tribute to the work Mr Dawson had achieved with the company, adding: “Les infinitely remains our friend and ally, and we wish him the best of luck."
Glenn, in his role as president at ATG Access, leading global manufacturer of bollards, barriers and road blockers, has wide exporting experience, being recognised in multiple industry awards. The company exports to more than 40 countries with a network of 25 international partners. Glenn holds two other Non-Executive roles in industry, bringing additional breadth to the Board.
