After successfully completing college and initially training as a professional chef, Derek spent the next fifteen years moving up through the ranks within the food retail sector.
SERVEST JOURNEY SO FAR
In June 2014, Derek decided it was time for a new challenge and joined Servest as a general manager. Derek was increasingly recognised for being forward thinking, motivating and extremely enthusiastic.
As a result, he was promoted to account director in July 2015, crediting his success on his leadership and relationship building skills and having the ability to recruit, retain and lead a management team into overachievement of key performance indicators set out by the business. In this role, Derek is accountable for the day to day operations for Servest’s account with a key grocery retailer’s distribution centres.
LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
Derek wants to further his career at Servest by developing his account into a full FM model. He feels this can be achieved through working collaboratively with the other account directors as there is a wealth of knowledge and experience that can be utilised.
“I’m very ambitious and would love the opportunity to further climb the Servest ladder.” – Derek
