Liz Benison becomes country manager for ISS UK and Ireland on 1 May, joining the executive group management to report directly to group CEO Jacob Aarup-Andersen.
Benison was previously on the board of Arriva, where she was managing director for mainland Europe. During her career, she has led the transformation of companies in several fields, including engineering, manufacturing and financial services.
Before working at Arriva, she held positions in companies such as Serco Group, CSC, Capgemini and Ford Motor Company.
Aarup-Andersen said: “UK & Ireland is an important market for ISS and we now have an experienced leader onboard to help drive the ongoing transformation and ensure profitable growth going forward. I am confident that our strengthened Executive Group Management team comprising a strong mix of internal talent and external additions with diverse backgrounds, broader expertise and new capabilities will lead us well into the future.”
Andrew Price, who has been in the role pro tem since late January, will assist Benison with the transition and continue in his role as head of strategic growth in ISS Group.
