LCC Support Services has strengthened its management team with two new key appointments to drive the business forward.

Gerry Askew joins the business as commercial director and Phil Smith as sales and marketing director.

Bob Vincent executive chairman of LCC said:

“The business is already well over £20 million and on target for £30 million. We are building an alternative to the very large cleaning contractors, so we need highly qualified and experienced directors for key responsibilities.”

Askew, started his career as a security guard working up to FM director of SGP, now Bellrock. He was in-house facilities manager for TV AM for 10 years and four at MTV. His clients included public and private sector including Cisco, Cable & Wireless, Her Majesty’s Treasury, Camelot and many Public Private Partnership Projects.

Smith has also worked his way through the industry. He started in sales for Rentokil Initial and was divisional director for Syra Business Services plc (now Cordant). He was commercial director for Indigo Services and continued after the Failcom acquisition as a director working closely with the largest global FM groups.

He is a liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Environmental Cleaning, a member of BICSc and the BIFM; founder of The Hill Club and is a supporter of human rights and Living Wage Foundation.

Commenting on his new role, Smith said:

“I am very excited at joining LCC. It is a business with a big reputation for all the things I believe in – quality, service, customer care, training and fair pay. I am looking forward to raising sales for this top team.”
