Pareto FM has appointed Emma Wilson as its social impact director to focus on developing the firm’s sustainability initiatives and creating opportunities for its team to get more immersed in community-based enterprises.
Wilson has an understanding of the FM industry, having been a life cycle project manager but also offers a wealth of experience in the social impact sector, says the company. This includes a recent board-level position with Project 507, which conducts research into violence within the Criminal Justice System, providing training and programmes for the rehabilitation of offenders.
She has worked alongside Pareto for five years to deliver various schemes, particularly The Homelessness Initiative, which raised funds to buy 8,000 items and delivered at least 500 care packages to homeless people in Greater London and Oxfordshire.
Pareto FM leads a number of community-based initiatives in the FM sector, which includes founding Tomorrow Meets Today, The Homelessness Initiative and being part of the board that launched LGBT+ in FM. The company also campaigns for social causes including Black Lives Matter, mental health, neurodiversity and creating opportunities for young people.
Wilson said: “I’ve worked alongside Pareto for a number of years and have been inspired by their drive to change the world. Pareto has been excellent at promoting and founding many great initiatives but now is the chance to build that into something more formal and measurable.
“We will be bold and innovative in our thinking and will urge others in the sector to join us in changing the landscape of facilities management for the better, together”.
Andrew Hulbert, managing director of Pareto FM, added: “We are thrilled to have someone of Emma’s calibre join our growing senior management team. Emma brings with her an unmatched drive to support the community, drive environmental improvements and foster senior relationships within UK organisations. Emma’s extensive experience in community-based projects will ensure Pareto delivers unique and meaningful projects alongside the development of Pareto’s culture.”
