Birch Solutions has appointed a new managing director with global energy experience as the business embarks on a new ambitious growth strategy.
Birch Solutions, which was acquired by the Singleton Birch group 4 years ago, has undergone a major recruitment drive as it works to build on its position as one of the UK’s leading providers of biogas services and has now named Glenn Carney as the new Managing Director.
Glenn is a Chartered Mechanical Engineer and has worked in energy, oil and gas across the globe for a range of major blue-chip companies. He says: “Birch Solutions has big ambitions to build and grow and the business is ideally placed to become the go-to service provider in the burgeoning anaerobic digestion market.
“I’ve worked with some major international organisations, but I was really impressed with the potential of Birch Solutions, along with its ethos, talented team and the growth to date.”
Birch Solutions is one of the UK’s leading AD plant service providers, providing a full suite of services and maintenance along with biogas plant optimisation.
Based in Barnetby, North Lincolnshire, the business has recently made a number of new strategic appointments and has also agreed a series of new partnership agreements.
Glenn has more than 30 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry, as well as five years in the renewables sector. In a career that has spanned the globe, he was head of customer business for Rolls Royce in Asia and was global sales and marketing director for a leading international PLC.
He joined Birch Solutions in December as sales director but has now been named MD following the departure of Mark Sacker who is moving into a role within the chemicals industry.
He adds: “Much like Singleton Birch when it acquired a majority share in 2018, it was easy for me to see the potential of Birch Solutions and I firmly believe we can make it a significant part of the group.
“There is a huge opportunity for us in renewables and , with the support of the whole team, we will be building a brand that can always be trusted to deliver excellence.”
