G4S Facilities Management, the FM business of global security company G4S, has appointed Peter Jones as its managing director for UK, Ireland, the Channel Islands, and the Isle of Man.

Jones, who joins the company on 8 October, will be responsible for leading the FM business that employs more than 7,200 staff across these regions. G4S FM delivers integrated facilities management, security, front of house, hard FM, cleaning, catering and service desk services in the corporate, healthcare, education and central government sectors.

He has more than 23 years’ experience in the property, FM and engineering sector at national and international level, and was most recently MD of CBRE’s integrated facilities management business across EMEA.

Before that he held several leadership roles in his eight years at Carillion, with responsibilities including infrastructure services, property services and FM. In his earlier career, Jones worked for Barclays Bank, where he led the FM strategy, and at Johnson Controls, delivering FM across EMEA.

He has expertise in business leadership, market growth and acquisition, client relationship management, major outsourcing and real estate and facilities change.

Jones said: “At G4S I will have the opportunity to grow our FM business in the UK and Ireland, and help to develop our overall FM offering in other key markets, as clients are increasingly looking for us to provide additional integrated solutions.

“With security and FM services accounting for 59 per cent of group revenue globally, G4S has an unrivalled platform to respond to our customers’ increasingly complex requirements.”

G4S regional president, UK & Ireland, Peter Neden, added: “I would like to welcome Peter to G4S. The FM business has been identified as one of the key growth opportunities, both within the UK and the broader G4S Group.”
