Ilkley-based engineering firm NG Bailey is creating a new £300m services division.
The new iniative will bring together its Facilities Engineering Services and IT Services businesses, alongside the recently-acquired Freedom Group.
Peter Jones, previously managing director for IT Services and the newly-acquired Freedom group, extends his remit as managing director for the combined NG Bailey Services division, reporting into chief executive David Hurcomb.
The new division will focus on key market sectors and provide clients with a single point of contact to leverage NG Bailey’s integrated capabilities.
The new management team will include David Hartley, as chief operating officer (COO) of Freedom, Tim Simmons, as COO of the new Facilities & Infrastructure business and Kelly Tedesco, previously customer business director in the IT Services division, who becomes COO for IT Services.
Mr Jones said: “The new structure gives us tremendous opportunities to promote the benefits of a combined Services offer to customers, which I believe is unique in the market.
“I am looking forward to working with David, Tim and Kelly, and everyone in our Services teams, as we continue to transform the division and provide continued excellence to our clients.”
Mr Hurcomb said: “Separately, the group’s three services-led divisions have established strong positions in their individual markets, so combining their strengths provides us with a very powerful and persuasive offer across the entire industry. It also underpins the delivery of our order book, which is circa £1.4bn and delivers a more balanced construction and services business.
“Peter has an extensive background in services and infrastructure at a national and international level, so he is the ideal person to lead this combined division.”
