G4S Facilities Management, the FM division of global security company G4S plc, has appointed Gordon Brockington as its new strategy and business development director.
Previously group business development director at ESG and, prior to that, director for market development with Balfour Beatty Construction Services UK, Brockington has significant experience in both the public and private sectors having worked with central and local Government departments throughout the UK.
His expertise stretches across business and market strategy, outsourcing, contract management and executive leadership within a number of industries.
On the appointment, G4S FM’s interim regional managing director Darren Jones said: “I would like to welcome Gordon to the G4S Facilities Management business. With his extensive sector experience, he’s well placed to help us deliver our growth strategy in both the public and commercial sectors as we look to strengthen our position in the UK, Channel Islands and Ireland FM markets.”
Gordon Brockington stated: “I’m delighted to be joining the FM business at G4S. This is a hugely exciting opportunity and I’m very much looking forward to working towards increasing the business’ market share and realising the potential of the operation as a whole.”
Prior to his spell with Balfour Beatty, Brockington spent a number of years with Morrison Facilities Services and Iron Mountain. Following graduation he joined the Royal Navy, rising to the post of Executive Officer on HMS Sandown.
Cash industry leader to head G4S’s UK Cash Solutions business
G4S has also announced the appointment of Bill Hoyne as managing director of its UK Cash Solutions business.
Hoyne joins G4S from Brinks’ Corporation where he worked for 23 years.
During an international career, Hoyne has led businesses in Hungary, UK, Ireland and Germany before being appointed Brinks’ EMEA operations director.
Regional CEO of G4S Europe, Graham Levinsohn, said: “Bill brings substantial industry experience and customer insight which will accelerate our programme to re-establish G4S UK Cash Solutions as the most innovative and competitive supplier in the UK cash handling market.”
Commenting on his new role, Bill Hoyne told Risk UK: “At G4S, I will have the opportunity to shape the future of the UK cash market as part of a management team which is investing in a long-term vision for the industry.”
Hoyne joins G4S UK Cash Solutions at a juncture when the business is looking to roll out a number of new service lines – among them its Cash45 product – which will deliver significant cash handling efficiencies to SMEs.
