phs Group has appointed a new head of facilities management and property. Darren Hawkins has more than three decades’ experience in the services industry, working in both operations and sales for some of the leading FM market service providers. Having worked with phs for more than 25 years, he has now moved across to serve his former industry. His role will see him leading the strategic direction of the sector, growing client relationships and spreading the message of how phs can help FM and property companies offer more to their customers.
He said: “With so much focus on sustainability and wellbeing, FM and property companies need their supply partners to bring innovations to the table andphs has that edge. When you look at phs’s sustainability credentials and the innovations it can offer from an energy saving, cost saving and employee wellbeing perspective, it’s a package which is unique to the industry and this in turn aligns with our clients’ strategic objectives. I believe that this, together with the scale of its operation, makes phs the partner of choice which is what drew me to the company.”
