Servest has announced internal appointments at executive board level. Rob Legge, who has taken the UK business from a turnover of £1 million to £500 million since its inception in 1998, is stepping into the role of group chief executive for the global business. Legge’s leadership skills and considerable level of experience within the FM sector has cemented the group’s ability to work successfully in different environments, with new ventures across continental and cultural borders. This appointment aims to replicate the success of Servest UK globally by utilising Legge’s strategic skills and business acumen to widen the group’s geographical reach.
A successor has been appointed to assume the role of UK chief executive. C-J Green will move from her current role as chief people officer for the UK group and will become the new UK chief executive from October 2017. During the course of the next six months, Green will be working to transition into her new role with Legge’s full support.
“FM is all about individuals, and we’ve taken the unusual step of placing a ‘people person’ at the helm of the UK group,” said Green. “My journey within the business has been extraordinary. I work in the kind of environment where anything is possible and I have enjoyed every moment. I look forward to working with the Servest team on the next stage of our evolution - we have so much to offer our clients and our colleagues. It truly is a fantastic time to be in the group.”
Kenton Fine, Servest group chairman, said: “These internal changes demonstrate our commitment to further developing the group’s global presence. I look forward to working with the new board to further evolve our people and business strategy.”
