BGC Group has appointed Daniel Cooper as its next chief executive officer.
Cooper, who will start in the role on June 24, brings a wealth of experience to BGC’s diversified operations, according to chairman Neil Hamilton.
“The group continues to build a strong pipeline of long-term work, and is well placed to benefit from improving conditions in the resources, construction and property sectors,” Hamilton said.
“Danny will play a critical role in ensuring the group maintains its strong financial performance and achieves operating efficiencies across BGC’s diverse, vertically-integrated business units.
“On behalf of the board, I would like to thank Alan Tate, our continuing CFO, who has ably filled the interim role of acting CEO in recent months.”
Cooper has previously held senior leadership positions with a range of major corporates, most recently as CEO of Hanson UK, a leading supplier of building materials to the construction industry.
His prior roles include as regional general manager for Hanson/Pioneer in Australia, including in his home state, Western Australia.
