He was previously General Manager (UK) for ISS, while another ISS employee, Javier Torrente has been promoted to Regional Operations Manager, Region Europe and North Africa.

 

The new operations division will be led by Michael van Hemert, Chief Operating Officer. Also reporting to Michael will be Simon Peters in a new role as Global Head of Service Delivery. Simon will provide a single point of contact for the facilitation of commercial contracts, SLA Delivery and the implementation of new products and will work to provide the optimal interface between operations and commercial performance.

Said Michael van Hemert: “We talked to customers in detail when reviewing the business and based on their feedback created a new structure which centres on promoting their needs and ensuring we achieve the very best operational performance and service management. The new regional teams will also be tasked with optimising our resources and capabilities, and standardizing our global work processes to the highest level.”
