SafeGroup has appointed Martin Gammon, former chief executive officer of OCS Group, to be its non-executive chairman. Gammon is providing strategic business guidance for SafeGroup as it grows its portfolio of services which include specialist cleaning, emergency waste removal, pest proofing and control, and legionella prevention.
SafeGroup’s managing director, Steve Broughton, said Gammon's experience and insights will be invaluable as the company seeks to lever all the benefits from operating its interconnected services. He added: "Martin has built his own businesses and he has run one of the largest facilities management companies in the UK. His expertise, both entrepreneurial and corporate, is a perfect fit for us. We want to waste no time in growing SafeGroup, so we can deliver our unique mix of services to more of the biggest and best businesses in the UK. Martin is already playing a key role in helping us realise that ambition."
Martin Gammon said: "Providing a truly agile and responsive reactive FM service is very hard to do, but SafeGroup, through its four divisions, is achieving just that. Its services are entrepreneurial and driven by a strong can-do ethos which allows them to deliver what other can't. The growth in demand for total FM solutions, at a time when consolidation and cost control in the FM sector is driving a process of standardisation of service delivery, is opening up strong niches where specialist providers can thrive, and SafeGroup is one of them."
