Guerillascope appoints Chris Cole as chairman

Guerillascope is delighted to announce the appointment of UK businessman Chris Cole as our new chairman.

Chris joins one of the UK’s fastest-growing TV advertising agencies and will bring his proven track record of successfully growing businesses.

In 2012 he was instrumental in the merger between WSP Group plc and a Canadian public company, GENIVAR, where the former was acquired by the latter in one of the biggest deals of the year.

Having served as CEO of WSP Group since its IPO in 1987, Chris is now Non-Executive Chairman of the enlarged company, WSP Global Inc., which operates worldwide with 15,000 employees. In addition Chris is Non-Executive Chairman of Ashtead Group plc, which has recently become a FTSE 100 business. He is also Senior Non-Executive Director of the renewable energy generator, Infinis Energy plc, which quoted on the London Stock Exchange following a successful IPO in November 2013.

In 2011 Chris was recognised for his innovation and leadership with the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Association for Consultancy & Engineering (ACE), of which he is now Chairman. Chris’s insight, experience and drive are a welcome addition to Guerillascope, which is already a company full of confidence after what has been another successful year in 2013.

Commenting on his appointment as Chairman and objectives for the future, Chris said: “I am excited to be joining this young, enthusiastic team and look forward to helping them grow even further. We want to see this business recognised as the leader within our sector.”
