Chris Jarvis appointed as MD for JR&Co

14 October 2021

Julius Rutherfoord & Co (JR&Co) are delighted to announce the appointment of Chris Jarvis to the role of Managing Director.

Chris joined JR&Co as Chief Financial Officer in 2018 and he has been instrumental in developing the quality of the finance, IT, and HR teams within the business, along with ensuring the ongoing growth and profitability of the business.

As the Covid-19 pandemic swept through the world, Chris was at the forefront of JR&Co’s client collaboration approach, developing a flexible service that provided clients with outstanding hygiene and sanitisation services whilst also enabling them to manage budgets and offset costs that would have potentially been hard to bear.

In developing this approach, JR&Co ensured the retention of most clients, grew offers into clients and exited the pandemic in a buoyant manner.

Chris is a chartered accountant, having trained with PwC and subsequently holding senior finance roles at publicly listed businesses Gartner, Rackspace, G4S and finally private equity backed Clean Linen Services Ltd before joining JR&Co in 2018.

As Managing Director, Chris takes on full responsibility for achieving the growth targets that the business has set, along with working alongside the Operational Board to continually improve the quality of the offer that is delivered daily.

Commenting, Chris said: “I am thrilled to have been promoted to the role of Managing Director of Julius Rutherfoord.

"Having been with this great company for 3 years, I understand the details that are critical to success.

"I now look forward to leading a winning team and applying my two decades of technology and outsourced services experience to focus on innovation, customer success and operational excellence in order to deliver value to our growing customer base.”
