NG Bailey has appointed Peter Jones as Managing Director of its IT Services division, following the announcement that current MD, Bob Dunnett, will retire at the end of May.
Jones, who joins the business from G4S where he held the role of MD Facilities Management UK and Ireland, and has also previously held senior leadership positions at CBRE and Carillion, will report directly to NG Bailey’s Chief Executive, David Hurcomb. His new venture will be to lead the IT Services division which specialises in the design, supply, installation, management and maintenance of voice, data and structured cabling solutions to contracting, enterprise and public sector clients.
Commenting on the appointment, Hurcomb said: “Bob has done a great job and we wish him a long and happy retirement. He leaves us with a strong client base and an ever-expanding pipeline of new business opportunities. I now look forward to working closely with Peter to continue the development of the division, as well as actively pursuing opportunities to accelerate the growth of all of our services businesses.
“Peter has a well-deserved reputation within the facilities management, construction and commercial property sectors at both a national and international level and has a deep understanding of providing complex services to both the private and public sector. This coupled with a background in engineering services and strong leadership skills will ensure that we continue to innovate and grow our IT services capabilities.”
