The Weir Group PLC has announced changes to its Group Executive including two new appointments that help strengthen the company’s focus on sustainability and technology.
Paula Cousins will become Chief Strategy and Sustainability Officer, recognising Weir’s desire to make its main markets more sustainable, including reducing energy, waste and water consumption.
Garry Fingland will also join the Group Executive as Chief Information Officer with responsibility for company-wide information and technology systems including the company’s digital products.
Both appointments are effective from 1 January 2020. Geetha Dabir, currently Chief Technology Officer, will leave Weir at the end of 2019 after 3 years in which she developed the company’s new technology agenda and built the foundations for its digital platforms.
Commenting on the appointments, Weir Group Chief Executive Officer Jon Stanton said: “This is an exciting time for Weir with our customers looking to us to help them overcome some of their biggest technology challenges. I am therefore delighted that we have strengthened our team further with the appointment of Paula and Garry to the Group Executive. Both appointments show our commitment to using innovative engineering to make our customers smarter, more efficient and sustainable.”
