Tech-led facilities management company Arcus FM has made two new senior appointments to strengthen its top team.
Earlier this year the FM firm gained a significant strategic investment from ESO Capital Partners and as part of its expansion within the FM industry, it welcomes a new non-executive chair and managing director to the multi-client business.
Patrick Macdonald has been appointed as the new non-executive chair of Arcus. He joined the company at the end of last month and has previously held senior executive roles at blue-chip companies including Unilever, Boston Consulting Group, GE and John Menzies.
He is currently a non-executive director for several B2B service businesses including managed print provider CCS and call-answering service MoneyPenny. He is also a trustee of the Woodland Trust.
Macdonald said: “Arcus uses its unparalleled technology to deliver exceptional service to its clients. I have been very impressed with the outstanding quality of the business and the leadership team, and I look forward to working with them to build upon the organisation’s many strengths.”
He offers the firm international business leadership experience, with key skills in buy-and-build/scale-up and tech re-platforming.
Arcus has also appointed Mark Woods as its new managing director. He will take up the role in October. Having spent over 20 years at Space Engineering Services, Mark held many engineering and management positions including technical director, service director and in 2013 he became joint managing director.
Woods said: “Being a people person, strong culture values are important to me, Arcus has incredibly strong social values. I am looking forward to joining the Arcus team and being an intrinsic part of their next phase of growth and maturity.”
As president of the British Refrigeration Association, Woods brings with him industry knowledge and experience to strengthen further Arcus’s refrigeration capabilities.
Chris Green, CEO of Arcus, said: “As we continue to expand within our sector it’s vital that we structure the business to support our next phase of growth.”
