VANTRUNK PROJECTS DIRECTOR MOVES TO GROUP DIRECTOR ROLE
Unitrunk Group has appointed Alan Campbell to the post of group projects director, with responsibility for driving business development strategy for major projects in harsh environments and overseeing project delivery across both Vantrunk and Unitrunk.
Alan has been part of the team at Vantrunk, the Unitrunk Group’s specialist in cable management for harsh environments, for 10 years. He worked across numerous departments, including engineering and sales, before becoming projects director. His appointment as group projects director marks a strategic move to align the commercial activities of both Vantrunk and Unitrunk in heavy industrial sectors, such as oil & gas, petrochemicals, water treatment, rail and nuclear, and provide a solutions-based approach that addresses all the cable management needs of each project.
Alan comments: “Vantrunk has more than 50 years’ experience of providing robust cable management solutions for extreme environments and has been part of the Unitrunk Group since 2000. There has always been a synergy between the product ranges of the two companies and we have always been united by a service-driven approach to collaborative working with customers. The creation of a group projects director role formalises this synergy and ensures that we take a holistic approach to driving business development with solutions from across the group portfolio for the various specialist sectors where Vantrunk already has a strong and respected presence.”
Alan will continue to work from Vantrunk’s advanced manufacturing site in Warrington and work closely with colleagues at the group headquarters in Lisburn, including group managing director, David Morrow, and Group Sales Director, Eddie O’Reilly. He will lead a group projects team made up of sales people from across the Vantrunk and Unitrunk businesses, with a remit of identifying specialist projects that require cable management for extreme environments both nationally and internationally, and developing the business development strategy. Alan’s role also includes working with the customer throughout the lifespan of the project to ensure that the specification meets the needs of the project and the installation is delivered to spec.
