Monteray appoints new MD

21 May 2008

Monteray Ltd has announced the appointment of Peter George-Jones to the position of Managing Director to lead the business through the transition from the existing contract with BT to mobilising and implementing service delivery for the new six-year contract commencing April 2009.

Peter Portlock, who has successfully led Monteray Ltd for over seven years since the beginning of the contract with BT, will continue his involvement with Monteray as an advisor to the senior team and as a Non-Executive Director on the board of Monteray Ltd.

With significant experience in the outsource facilities management market spending five years as a director at Land Securities Trillium and four years with Johnson Controls, Peter George-Jones’ focus on customer satisfaction and service delivery, together with his strong commercial and leadership skills, will be invaluable for steering Monteray through this new phase of development. Peter George-Jones is the Chair of the BIFM Training Advisory Group and a Non-Executive Director of BIFM Training.

‘On behalf of the Monteray team I would like to thank Peter Portlock for his achievements in leading this unique organisation. I am looking forward to building on the leading edge thinking and the excellent delivery platform that have been the hallmark of Peter’s tenure,’ said Peter George-Jones. ‘We are developing a fully integrated organisation, aligned to our customers ever changing needs, underpinned by innovation from the market leading shareholder organisations. The delivery of responsive, progressive and customer-focused solutions will set a benchmark for FM service delivery and create an environment where our people and our relationships with our suppliers flourish.’

Monteray Ltd was formed in April 2000 as a joint venture between Carillion Services (51%), Haden Building Management (24.5%) and Reliance Facilities Management (24.5%) as part of a plan – Project Jaguar – to revolutionise the provision of facilities management services to BT.

Monteray took full responsibility for the provision of services to BT properties in April 2001 as part of an initial 5-year contract worth approximately £500m, extended to 2009 from April 2006. In February 2008, Monteray and BT announced that a new six-year facilities management contract had been signed worth in excess of £500m to run from April 2009 until 2014 with the potential to extend for a further four years.

Monteray provides services ranging from cleaning and security to building and grounds maintenance and beyond. The 7,000 (approximate) buildings include offices, computer centres, research centres, telephone engineering centres, motor transport workshops, telephone exchanges and the landmark BT Tower in London.
