ABM makes a move

ABM makes moves as part of strategic growth plan

ABM is integrating its teams, as its London Bridge office has moved into the Transport for London (TfL) North Greenwich offices, underpinning ABM’s partnership with its long-standing customer.

ABM also announced two appointments to its senior leadership team. Niall Partridge, previously leading finance for the Irish business, has taken on the role of Finance Director for UK and Ireland. Simon Barnes has also been appointed Vice President of Sales in the UK and Ireland.

The last two years have been significant for ABM with the acquisition of Dublin-based Momentum Support, new team members from Ireland and the appointment of Richard Sykes, SVP & President for the UK and Ireland, who has outlined plans for 2024.

Following regional roadshows, Richard Sykes’ people-focused vision has been presented to over 120 of the company’s leadership from around the country in an annual conference and awards ceremony entitled, One ABM, A New Chapter. The introduction of the annual event seeks to empower the 12,500 strong UK and Ireland teams to embrace a united approach to achieving ABM’s targets.

Richard Sykes comments: “Relocating from London Bridge to a vibrant location at Pier Walk, North Greenwich, heralds the start of a new chapter for ABM. This is an exciting time for us because we have the potential to grow significantly, backed by our Group.

“We’ll drive our growth agenda with the many strengths behind us to push deeper into our chosen sectors, including Transport, Business and Industry, Public Sector, Distribution and Manufacturing.

“Over the past month we’ve brought the team together through regional roadshows across the UK and Ireland to reflect on the successes and lessons of the last year, but most importantly to look forward. Every member of the ABM team has a part to play in this new chapter for our business and together we will move forward as One ABM.”

Simon Barnes commented: “It’s an exciting time to join the business as we open a new chapter; aligning our lines of business to evolve our offering, with cross collaboration and shared best practices. With a strategic sector focus as our priority, we will continue to add value to our customer offering by introducing subject matter experts and innovative creative thinking into their space.”
