Aston Services Group was formed in 2016 by the merger of Cleanall commercial and industrial cleaning business and Care Facility Management, an established security and facilities management business. Employing almost 800 staff, Atkinson’s appointment will be to direct and drive the business through a sustained level of strategic and planned growth and to position the business as a significant player within the facilities management industry.
Atkinson brings with him a wealth of business growth experience within the B2B sector having worked with major institutional investors who have backed his business interests in addition to working as a Main Board Director of a fully quoted London Stock Exchange company. He has experience of negotiating and supplying many of the country’s leading blue chip companies such as BT, TUI, Compass Group, Jet 2 and Balfour Beatty.
Commenting on the appointment, Chairman, Ian Gilston said: “The appointment of Nick marks a major step change for the business in that he brings real strategic and commercial expertise to the group to allow us to build on our already excellent large blue chip customer base.”
