Mitie welcomes new director of cleaning services

Mitie has appointed Lorraine Davis as director of cleaning services, responsible for leading the direction of Mitie’s cleaning business. Davis has over 40 years’ experience in the cleaning industry, working in a number of operational and business development roles in complex environments such as healthcare and education.

In 2019, she was appointed chairman of the British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc), a post she will continue to hold until September 2022. She has also previously collaborated with the World Health Organisation, as part of the Clean Hospital Group, and the NHS to help develop the 2021 National Cleaning Standards for hospitals. In addition, she has worked with Public Health England to support with the development of the COVID-19 guidance for FM.

Jason Towse, managing director, business services, Mitie, said: “The Coronavirus pandemic has made clear just how important a clean environment is to create safe and healthy workspaces. Having helped introduce many of the nationally-recognised cleaning guidelines that we now take for granted, Lorraine brings a wealth of experience that will keep Mitie at the forefront of innovation, ensuring we have access to the latest science behind our cleaning services. With offices, retail shops and restaurants reopening, this will help our clients reassure their customers that they’re doing everything they can to keep them safe.”
