“With more than 11 years of experience as a regional managing director in Europe, Duncan brings strong sales and marketing leadership to his new role,” said Søren Ø. Sørensen, Group executive vice president. “His experience will complement our existing strategies and plans as we work together toward our ambitious goal of doubling revenues to $1 billion in North America.”

With 16 years of experience within the company, Cooper recently served as regional managing director of Grundfos Western Europe. 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.

Cooper began his career with Grundfos in 1997 as managing director of Grundfos United Kingdom and, in 2003, he was promoted to managing director and Group senior vice president for North Europe and Africa. In this role, he developed an African growth strategy that facilitated the launch of a stand-alone area in 2008.
