Appointment of Social Impact Director
UK hard FM services provider Pareto FM has recruited Emma Wilson to the new post of Social Impact Director.
Wilson’s role will focus on developing Pareto’s sustainability initiatives, growing their community based projects and creating opportunities for Pareto team members to broaden their involvement in community based initiatives. She brings previous facilities management experience to the position, after previously working as a Lifecycle Project Manager but in addition, joins Pareto with a wealth of experience in the Social Impact sector. This recently includes a Board level position with Project 507 which conducts action-research into violence within the Criminal Justice System; providing training and programs focused around the rehabilitation of offenders. Emma has worked alongside Pareto over the past five years to deliver various schemes but most notably The Homelessness Initiative which raised funds to buy 8,000 items and delivered over 500 care packages to homeless people across Greater London and Oxfordshire.
She comments: “I’ve worked alongside Pareto for a number of years and have been inspired by their drive to change the world. Pareto has been excellent at promoting and founding many great initiatives but now is the chance to build that into something more formal and measurable. I’m excited at leading initiatives within this extraordinary culture and developing exceptional, forward thinking approaches which will change lives today and far into the future.
“We will be bold and innovative in our thinking and will urge others in the sector to join us in changing the landscape of facilities management for the better, together”.
Andrew Hulbert, Pareto FM managing director, adds: “We are thrilled to have someone of Emma’s calibre join our growing senior management team. Emma brings with her an unmatched drive to support community, drive environmental improvements and foster senior relationships within UK organisations. Emma’s extensive experience in community based projects will ensure Pareto delivers unique and meaningful projects alongside the development of Pareto’s culture.
“Emma’s role will ensure that Pareto’s team members can be involved in meaningful initiatives that will broaden their own skillset and also enable them to make a difference much wider than within the FM industry only. We are here to change the world for the better”.
Pareto leads a number of community based initiatives in the facility services sector which include founding Tomorrow Meets Today – an initiative to help the homeless, and being part of the board that launched “LGBT+ in FM”. The company also continues to champion a number of social causes including Black Lives Matter, mental health, neurodiversity and creating opportunities for young people.
