Grundfos Appoints CEO for North American Region
Duncan Cooper will oversee and direct all operations in the U.S., Canada and Mexico
Grundfos appointed Duncan Cooper as president and chief executive officer of the company’s North American region. Cooper succeeds Jes Munk Hansen, who leaves the company to pursue other interests after leading the region for the past five years.
Cooper comes to the North American region with 16 years of experience within the company. Most recently he served as regional managing director of Grundfos Western Europe, where he led a newly created sales and service region with 1,300 employees and more than $900 million in revenues. He will also maintain his role as group senior vice president.
In his new position, Cooper will oversee and direct all operations in the U.S., Canada and Mexico with continued emphasis on residential and commercial buildings services, as well as the industry, water utility, irrigation and agriculture, and wastewater businesses. The presidents or general managers of each of those sectors will report directly to Cooper, as will the heads of finance, human resources and public affairs.
