Søborg, Denmark, 02-Sep-2016 — /EuropaWire/ — With the appointment of Gary Kidd, Chief Operating Officer of ISS UK, as the new Country Manager, ISS Sweden is further increasing its focus on providing Integrated Facility Services to large customers.
ISS, a leading global provider of facility services and a market leader in the Nordic region, today announced the appointment of Gary Kidd, Chief Operating Officer of ISS UK, as the new Country Manager of ISS Sweden.
Gary Kidd has been with ISS UK & Ireland since 2012. In recent years, he has played a leading part in the very successful development of ISS in the UK. In the UK, 90% of the revenue originates from the Key Account segment, where Integrated Facility Services IFS is an instrumental part of the service delivery. Furthermore, Gary has been responsible for the very successful integration of the GS Hall Technical Services acquisition made in 2015 into the ISS UK business.
Troels Bjerg, CEO for ISS in the Northern Europe Region, said:
“In recent years, Sweden has built an outstanding capability to self-deliver large, Integrated Facility Services (IFS) contracts. As opposed to the delivery of single services or Facility Management (FM) contracts, the IFS model leads to higher value for the customer through cost savings based on a number of synergies, employee engagement, and end-user service orientation.
“Gary Kidd has deep and strong industry experience and a proven track record with both Integrated Facility Services and the important Key Account segment. This experience will be of great value as he takes up the position as Country Manager in Sweden – the most mature outsourcing market among the Nordic countries – helping us to further develop our market leading position in Sweden.”
Gary Kidd, the new Country Manager of ISS Sweden, said:
“I am really excited about this opportunity and about joining ISS Sweden. I am indeed looking forward to working with the strong Swedish leadership team and working together on strengthening ISS’ leadership position in the very important Swedish market and further developing our Integrated Facility Service offerings to our key customers here. As part of our move to Stockholm, both my wife and I will take Swedish language lessons as one of our first priorities.”
Gary Kidd holds an MBA from Oxford Brooks University. He will relocate to Stockholm with his wife, Debra.
