Galiford’s new position sees him responsible for Norse’s compliance, health and safety, and environmental and quality issues across its operating divisions and public sector partnerships. As such he has overall Board level responsibility for the central Procurement Team, the Safety, Health, Environment, and Quality (SHEQ) team and the company’s Information Technology and applications (ITaps) team.
In addition, his remit also includes the negotiation and mobilisation of new local authority joint ventures: Norse currently has 14 such partnerships, representing a major element in its forward order book of £2.2 billion. Sales Director Geoff Tucker says that the company is currently in the final stages of creating a number of new local authority partnerships that will add significantly to Norse’s portfolio.
Norse recently announced record profits, and significant growth in the first five months of the current year, which have led to a number of new appointments, including Daniel Vanstone’s appointment to the newly created position of Operations Director for its facilities management services.
