In his most recent role as COO of AAG Events, he delivered significant value to the audio-visual setup division and contributed to substantial growth within the region.
Commenting on the announcement, CEO Scott Davis, said: “We are thrilled to have Glen aboard IBS Stage Sets, he is a team player, tremendous people’s person and a skilled communicator, with a great passion for the events scene.”
“Glen shares our collective vision for delivering superlative customer service at all levels, and his enthusiasm for our dry hire division also reflects our general growth in the UAE and the Middle East. He has the knowledge and energy to drive the company forward to meet the demands of our expanding customer base throughout the region.”
Speaking on his appointment, Dougherty added: “The economic direction of the UAE and the rise of regional opportunities provides an ideal environment for success, and as far as this company is concerned … the sky is the limit!”
