The director of Faithful+Gould's Yorkshire and East Midlands cluster, David Holmes, has been promoted to the position of managing director for its central region.
Now responsible for directing and co-ordinating offices in Warrington, Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Nottingham and Sheffield, the changes to his role became effective on 1 April.
Having worked for Faithful+Gould for 28 years, mainly in the heavy industry, mining, manufacturing and rail sectors, David’s promotion comes as part of a wider business re-shuffle of key staff members which has been undertaken to redefine the UK business into four new regions.
"This is a period of exciting and positive change for Faithful+Gould and I am delighted to take up my new position. It will see me continue to be based in Leeds with a profit and loss responsibility across the central region for a further 350 staff.
"Looking forward to the challenges this role will present, I am keen to further fuse the cultures of the North West, Yorkshire and East Midlands teams as well as helping to deliver the seamless Faithful+Gould model across the UK. I will also be increasing our integration and co-operation with our colleagues in the US and Asia Pacific. Blending strengths in this manner will enable our growing team to further continue its success.
"Faithful+Gould is undoubtedly an employer of choice. It has an unparalleled and exciting strategic vision that is focused on continual investment in products, systems, sectors and staff."
Further changes to Faithful+Gould’s operational regions have been announced for London, North and Ireland and the South East.
Donald Lawson, Chief Operating Officer for the UK, said:
"The new arrangement of regions is a very positive step towards meeting our aspirations of providing greater flexibility and versatility in delivering core services to our clients."
