We recently announced that we had appointed Phil Shepley as new Managing Director following Daniel Easthope’s move to Carillion. This is the first in a series of articles around our new Managing Director, which discusses Phil’s background. The series will focus on his observations and priorities and how they can help take our business forward.
During the last twelve years Phil has worked in Facilities Management across a number of sectors including corporate customers, healthcare, energy, local authority and Defence. Prior to this, he managed the maintenance of railways starting as a Signalling Graduate trainee. Phil was also Managing Director six years ago when the contract was with MODern Housing Solutions so he already has a wealth of experience he can bring to the role.
He is looking forward to the challenges his new role will bring as well as bringing the skills and knowledge he already has across to our business. Phil said, “Thanks for all the support I’ve had in the first couple of weeks from everyone. It’s been very welcoming. I’ve enjoyed catching up with old friends that I haven’t seen for six years and will try and see as many of our stakeholders as possible in the coming months. This feedback will help me and our leadership teams stay focussed on the key priorities, as we finalise the 2018 business plan.”
