ISS Restructures Executive Board
ISS has restructured its Executive Group Management (EGM), announced a newly created post of CEO – Strategic Transformation will be filled by Richard Sykes (currently, the group’s regional CEO for Northern Europe), and also merged its Continental and Northern European operating companies into a single new organisation..
The integrated facility services provider has also re-affirmed the appointment of Corinna Refsgaard as Group People & Culture Officer which was first announced on 20 December 2018.
Changes which have been made following the announcement of a new strategic direction focusing on the acquisition and maintenance of existing global key account customers follow publication by the group of new annual organic growth target of between 4 and 6 per cent.
Explaining the changes, ISS Group CEO, Jeff Gravenhorst, said:
“We have a clear focus on growth by serving Key Accounts across the globe. These Key Accounts have certain customer needs and to deliver against these needs, it is essential that we build an organisation that is fit for purpose.
“We are organising ourselves in a way that allows us to leverage volumes, concepts and talent across customers, across services, and across countries. At the same time, Strategic Transformation will have dedicated leadership for ensuring solid performance of countries being divested and building up capacity to operate our global Key Account customers in these countries. This agile structure creates a significantly less complex organisation providing room for our remaining countries to focus on growth.”
