Ian Fraser joins as Terram Business Director Geosynthetics

Fiberweb is pleased to announce the appointment of Ian Fraser as Business Director of Geosynthetics.

Ian has more than 25 years of experience working in the geotechnical industry and has played a significant role in increasing the profile of geotechnical and geosynthetic solutions through his work with the International Geosynthetics Society, Ground Forum and the Construction Industry Council.

Ian joined Fiberweb on July 22nd having previously worked as Vice President of Global Technology at Tensar and as Managing Director of TenCate Geosynthetics UK.

He said: “I’m delighted to have joined Fiberweb having always respected the company for the quality of its technical solutions, its people and the strength of brands like Terram, Defencell and GrassProtecta.

“More recently I have been impressed with Fiberweb’s obvious intent to put innovation at the heart of everything it does.

“I am also pleased to have joined so soon after Fiberweb’s acquisition of a controlling interest in Terram India, which sends a clear statement about the company’s ambition.

“Geosynthetics are still massively underutilised in the construction industry as a whole, but by continuing to innovate and take bold decisions we can give these solutions the recognition they deserve. These are exciting times for Fiberweb and for the geosynthetics industry.”

Ian will work out of Fiberweb’s head office in Richmond, London, UK. He has joined Fiberweb’s Executive Team and will contribute to decision making at the highest level within the company.

Fiberweb CEO Daniel Dayan said: “Ian’s appointment is particularly pleasing as it comes at a time of significant investment in Fiberweb’s geosynthetics division.

“I am sure his experience will prove invaluable as we expand into new technologies and markets over the coming months.”
