ISS appoints new CEO for Americas Region

ISS has announced that Susanne Jorgensen will take over the role as CEO, Americas Region and become member of the Executive Group Management (EGM) effective 1 July.

Jorgensen will replace Dan Ryan, current CEO of Americas and Chief Group Commercial Officer, who has decided to step down from the EGM and leave ISS by the end of July.

Ryan joined ISS in 2016 as CEO of the Americas region and later took on the additional role of Chief Group Commercial Officer in 2020. In addition to strengthening ISS’s position in the Americas, he led and played an instrumental role in the largest ISS acquisition to date, Guckenheimer in 2017, which ISS says has “strengthened the breadth of food services” it provides to its clients in the US.

Group CEO Jacob Aarup-Andersen from ISS commented: “I would like to thank Dan for his support, commitment and contribution to ISS and the Executive Group Management. I am very pleased that we are able to continue to draw on Dan’s long experience as he has agreed to act as an external advisor to ISS in the coming period.”

Jorgensen, who brings growth, transformation and leadership experience to ISS Americas, joined ISS in September 2017 first as Regional CFO for Americas before moving to her current position as CEO North America in December 2020. Jorgensen’s new role will see her continue to further the OneISS strategy in the region with a strong focus on diversity and inclusion.

ISS has initiated a search process for the vacant position as Chief Group Commercial Officer and expects to announce this position later this year.

FMJ has teamed up with leading outsourced communication provider, Moneypenny, to host a webinar ‘Outsourcing to help win the race for talent’ on June 28th at 11am.

This webinar will look at how outsourcing is a cost-effective and highly relevant strategy to not only counter the race for talent, but to build greater agility, expertise, infrastructure and resource into business. In particular it will acknowledge the operational challenges facing FMs as the UK starts its return to the workplace.
