UK CEO appointed by OCS

31 March 2016

OCS Group has confirmed that its current Public Sector, Healthcare and Infrastructure chief executive, Bob Taylor, will step up to become the new UK chief executive officer (CEO) from 1 April 2016.

Taylor joined OCS Group in April 2014 from G4S plc where he was managing director of a £300m business unit, employing 7,500 people.

During his time with OCS, he has been the lead for a diverse business unit, with a specific remit to grow the company’s presence in public sector and healthcare.

Key achievements include turning a number of business areas around, growing the healthcare business by 21% and playing a key role in restructuring OCS UK for the future.

Peter Slator, OCS group chief executive, said: “OCS UK has clear and ambitious objectives for the future and we are delighted that we have such an experienced and driven Chief Executive to lead the business into the future”.

Taylor’s appointment comes at the end of a two-month long strategic review period, which has resulted in two UK divisions being consolidated into a more streamlined organisational structure that puts customer requirements firmly at the heart of the business.

He will be assisted by managing directors across a number of key sectors including: education, healthcare, manufacturing, government, business and industry, leisure and retail.

Speaking about the changes to OCS UK, Taylor said: “With a history of more than 115 years in facilities management, we are keen to build on our firm foundations by adapting to the requirements of our customers. The recent review gave us the opportunity to reflect on our strengths and identify areas where we can improve the business to ensure that we continue serving our customers to a high standard for many years to come.”
