Serna FM makes new appointment to support growth

London-based Serna Facilities Maintenance, part of the wider Serna Group, specialising in commercial cleaning and renovation works, has appointed its first Non-Executive Director Gary Lumby MBE, as part of its future Growth Strategy.

The group is aiming to double its turnover to £5 million this year and substantially increase its workforce as a host of new client opportunities have been secured.

Lumby is an experienced ex C-Level Banker previously with Barclays and Yorkshire Banks but who since 2012, has built up an impressive array of Non-Executive roles within businesses across the UK in many different sectors.

Commenting on the appointment Mauricio Palacios Serna, Managing Director and Co-founder of Serna Group said: “We are fortunate to be able to recruit such an experienced and successful Non-Executive Director as Gary and I know that his knowledge and vast network will be influential in our future success.”

Lumby added: “I worked with Mauricio Palacios Serna owner of Serna Group on the Goldman Sachs 10k Small Business Programme where I am a Growth Expert and it was clear that this was a business going places and had the potential to seriously scale up. So, I am delighted to be joining the Board at this important stage of its growth journey.”

2023 FMJ and Grundon Recycling and Waste Management Survey

FMJ in conjunction with Grundon Waste Management is pleased to launch the 2023 waste management and recycling survey which examines the ways in which FMs approach their waste management responsibilities.

In this, the sixth year for the annual appraisal, we know there is a greater opportunity than ever for FMs to reappraise their waste and recycling operations and help their organisations meet the growing pressure to achieve ESG goals.

We want to learn how FMs have adapted to the legislative, economic and societal changes of the past year and how they plan to meet the latest waste and recycling targets.

In this survey we’ve posed a series of questions which include insights into FMs’ waste management strategy and targets, how they’re moving towards zero waste targets, and the importance of not just meeting compliance targets but also ESG goals.

The results of the 2023 survey will be published in FMJ magazine and form the basis of a white paper co-written by FMJ and the experts at Grundon on how to approach waste and recycling strategies.
