Richard Sykes is FMA’s new chairman

30 October 2007

Taylor Woodrow director, Richard Sykes is to succeed Gareth Hollyman as chairman of the Facilities Management Association.

Richard will be supported by retiring chairman Gareth Hollyman (Jones Lang LaSalle), vice chairman Stephen Pippard (Reliance Integrated Services), the Director General and Association Secretary, and will be announcing his agenda for the FMA in 2008 later this year.

Richard is an Executive Board Director for Taylor Woodrow, responsible for its FM business as well as an expanding remit of driving Taylor Woodrow’s wider ‘Improving our People’ business agenda. He joined Taylor Woodrow in 1988 following graduation from Kingston University and has been working within the FM industry since 1990. Richard has previously been a council member of the BIFM and has a real passion for driving improvements and awareness of the industry.

The FMA was established in 1995 and has 35 member companies, which form the trade association for the sector. The members employ around 600,000 people, have a collective turnover of more than £5bn and operate in the public and private sectors. It enjoys representation at the CBI’s Trade Association Council and Asset Skills, the Sector Skills Council for Property, Housing, Cleaning and Facilities Management. The membership profile is most representative of this service sector and enjoys support from many major contractors, consulting engineers, single and multi-service providers and workplace providers.
