Leading anaerobic digestion specialist Birch Solutions has appointed a new managing director.
Glenn Carney will bring global energy experience to the business as it embarks on a new ambitious growth strategy, as predecessor Mark Sacker takes the helm of Tricoya UK at Saltend, Hull.
The technology partner behind North Lincolnshire quarry giant Singleton Birch’s investments in the sector was bought four years ago and has recently bolstered its team as it works to build on its position as one of the UK’s leading providers of biogas services.
Carney is a chartered mechanical engineer and has worked internationally for a range of blue-chip companies.
He said: “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.
Carney has more than 30 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry, as well as five years in the renewables sector. He was head of customer business for Rolls Royce in Asia and was global sales and marketing director for another leading international plc, before arriving in Barnetby, North Lincolnshire in December as sales director.
He added: “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.”
