Eric Wright Facilities Management, part of the Eric Wright Group, has undergone a management restructure as part of its planned growth strategy.

The appointments include new operations director Tony Bignold, who will oversee the facilities management operations and service delivery.

Kate Corden has been promoted to head of operations while Rebecca Chrimes steps up to the position of operations manager.

A further nine appointments including graduates, managers and supervisors have also been made bringing the total facilities management team to 140.

Tony said: “Eric Wright Facilities Management is set for significant expansion and I am delighted to join the team at such an exciting time.

"I have previously helped companies grow and improve their quality of service so am looking forward to helping the facilities management team as it faces similar challenges."

Mark Steed, managing director of Eric Wright Facilities Management, added: “The business has been built on solid foundations and we are now setting our sights on expansion, targeting larger organisations and public sectors contracts and growing our contract base right across the Midlands and the north of England.

"Investing in our team to ensure we have the best people with the right skills is crucial to achieving our goals. We have undertaken a root and branch review of the business and have recruited and promoted the best people into senior positions as well as strengthening our foundations with the appointment of graduates and technical specialists.”

Preston-based EWFM delivers facilities management services to Lancashire County Council, Cheshire West and Chester Council, Stoke-on-Trent City Council, Manchester College, Bilfinger Industrial Automation Services and One Partnership, a public–private partnership which connects health, social care and housing. It has also been awarded a contract to service 16 PFI fire stations across the North West over the next 18 years for ENGIE Services Limited and Balfour Beatty under the partnership’s PFI arrangement.
