Global service provider Atalian Servest has announced a new senior board for the UK and Ireland business.
Daniel Dickson has been promoted to CEO for the UK and Ireland. Dickson brings wealth of experience to the role having held a number of positions in the Group since joining in 2012, including Group Finance Director and Managing Director of the Building Services division. In 2017, he was appointed Chief Development Officer, where he was responsible for mergers and acquisitions globally, and played an instrumental role in the merger between Atalian and Servest earlier this year. Dickson fills the shoes of C-J Green, who leaves after eight years with the organisation.
Sean Fisher has stepped into the role of Chief Operating Officer for Atalian Servest in the UK. Fisher was previously Managing Director of Servest’s Cleaning business, where he developed a great track record of results as well as an outstanding customer service ethos. With a great deal of experience in Servest’s FM operations, Fisher has an unparalleled understanding of what it takes to succeed in his new role.
Tom Evans has been appointed Finance Director and Johan Venter has replaced Fisher as Managing Director of Cleaning.
Commenting on the new appointments, Atalian Servest Chairman UK and Ireland Rob Legge said: “These latest appointments demonstrate Atalian Servest’s commitment to promoting and rewarding our people, as well as our success at developing the huge array of talent we have across the Group. I have no doubt that the new UK senior board team will help Atalian Servest grow, as we continue with our ambitious plans in the UK and internationally.
“Daniel has played a key role in the growth and development of Servest over the past six years and I believe the business will continue to go from strength to strength under his leadership.”
Commenting on his new role, Dickson said: “I am delighted to be moving into the role of CEO. Having been involved in the merger between Atalian and Servest, I understand the potential and vision of our new organisation. Atalian Servest is an organisation driven by a culture of togetherness and great customer service, and I cannot wait to lead the UK and Ireland business into what promises to be a very exciting future.”
In May of this year, Servest formally merged with global facilities management company Atalian to form one of the world’s largest FM outsourcing companies. The global service provider has developed a solid reputation for successful acquisitions and has positively progressed as a result of its extensive growth before and since the merger.
