Following the recent acquisition of Integral, I am pleased to announce an organisational change that we are making as we work to integrate our two companies.
From 1 September Bryan Glastonbury will lead the engineering services team in EMEA as Head of Engineering Services, EMEA. Mike Friedl will report to Bryan and Mike's direct reports will continue to report to him. Bryan is the Managing Director of Integral and has over 40 years’ experience in the Mechanical and Electrical Building Services industry.
This change comes as we seek to bring our businesses together following the acquisition, and provide the best operating model going forward. There will be no impact on service delivery to our clients. Our combined businesses make us one of the largest providers of mobile engineering services in the world, with a substantially strengthened and expanded outsourcing offer for our clients. With this new platform we will be able to deliver an improved engineering service, with double the number of engineering experts and on-the-ground service providers; saving our clients time, complexity and resource costs.
Mike will continue to bring his engineering expertise and leadership to the combined operation as Head of IFM Engineering Services; playing a key role in implementing Next Generation Maintenance (NGM), integrating the two engineering teams, and working with Bryan to establish the go-forward structure.
Under Mike’s stewardship the engineering services team has continued to grow and add depth and capability to its offering.
This change is an important step forward in the integration of our two businesses.
