Gary Fage becomes new Master of The Worshipful Company of Environmental Cleaners

The Worshipful Company of Environmental Cleaners (WCEC) has welcomed Gary Fage as its new Master after his installation ceremony at St Olave’s church on 17 September.

Taking over the mantle of Master from John Shonfeld, Fage was appointed the Master Elect by the Court of the Company last February.

Fage, who has had a long and successful career in the cleaning industry, and is now the Managing Director of Janitorial Express and a Director of Jangro Group, has been a WCEC member for 20 years, and has been closely involved with most WCEC committees for the past three years.

He is particularly committed to supporting the WCEC’s newest programme, the Chartered Practitioners in Environmental Cleaning.

Fage commented: “I’m so proud to be elected as the new Master of the WCEC. I will do as much as I can to build the momentum of its chartership programme to raise our industry’s standing, support our workforce, and build a recognised community of cleaning industry professionals that command the respect they deserve. The WCEC has an important role to play in making that happen for our industry.”

Fage brings with him a passion and commitment to cultivate more efficient and environmentally-friendly practices in the UK’s cleaning and hygiene industries. These elements already guide the direction of his own business, supplying eco-friendly cleaning products. He hopes to encourage his peers to embrace circular economy and C2C practices, ultimately growing a more sustainably focused culture within the cleaning industry.

Six steps to facilities management in the post-pandemic world

As workplaces open up and restrictions lift the role of the FM has become more important than ever.

The challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic are now providing a valuable opportunity for FMs to demonstrate their skills and adaptability. Whilst on a practical level FMs are responsible for making buildings safe and comfortable, they are also crucial in attracting people back to the office.

In speaking with industry leaders, it is clear that there are six key areas of focus. Zip has published a white paper which looks at each one, suggesting ways that facilities managers can tackle the complexities and pace of a return to the workplace, whilst demonstrating clear and effective leadership along the way.
