Portfolio recruits new account director

High specification cleaning service provider Portfolio, which is part of the Churchill Group, has appointed Charles Walden to the role of Accounts Director.

Walden joins the London team with a wealth of experience in the soft services industry as well as skill in managing accounts across commercial and residential properties and developing long lasting relationships with clients.

He has spent just under 10 years with cleaning and support services company NJC where he progressed from Account Manager to an Account Director responsible for a broad range of clients.

Speaking about his new appointment Walden said: “I am passionate about people and creating positive environments with collaborative working at their heart. I believe Portfolio’s values and its people centric focus are one of its biggest assets, and what attracted me to join the Portfolio family.”

Joe Saisi, MD at Portfolio London, commented: “We are extremely pleased to be welcoming Charles to the senior team here at Portfolio. He is extremely down to earth, experienced, and talented. Due to his skill and customer-focus in his work, he is certainly one to watch in the industry. He fits in the Portfolio team extremely well, and I can’t wait to see him succeed.”

Last week, Portfolio announced its appointment of Robert Trewick as Operations Director.

Metro Rod Drainage and Plumbing Survey

With the current economic crisis resulting in higher prices and more of a squeeze on resources, FMs need to ensure that they have robust building and maintenance services in place to control costs and reduce the need for emergency repairs. When it comes to drainage and plumbing there are also the challenges of dealing with extreme weather, from droughts to flooding, the need to meet stringent regulations and to avoid causing environmental damage.

UK drainage specialist, Metro Rod, has launched a survey which explores the main areas of interest for FMs in maintaining drainage and plumbing, including how they currently assess their supply chains to ensure they’re working with partners that meet the highest possible standards and provide value for money.

The results will be published online so that you can see how you compare to others within the sector.

The survey should take just 5-10 minutes of your time, and as a thank you, you will be entered into a prize draw, where one lucky winner will be picked at random to receive a £100 Amazon voucher.
