NG Bailey, one of the UK’s largest building services providers, has announced the appointment of David Hurcomb as its new chief executive officer (CEO).
David, who is currently interim CEO for Scotland based Havelock Europa PLC, the Educational and Retail, Interiors and Point of Sale Printing Group, will join NG Bailey in September.
David stepped down from the main board of Carillion plc late last year where he was responsible for the company's UK Building, Private Finance, Property Services and Training Services businesses. He also held board responsibility for the company's sustainability strategy, group-wide supply chain programme and was a director of its Middle East joint venture. David's career started with Carillion, following his appointment as managing director of the company's facilities management division in 2005. Prior to that he was a main board director for Mansell plc.
Nimble Thompson, NG Bailey’s chairman, comments: “I am delighted to announce David’s appointment. It’s clear to see from his career to date that David’s industry expertise is second to none and I have every confidence that he will lead NG Bailey through the recession and into a new and exciting era.
“I look forward to welcoming David as CEO and as a member of our main board. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Chris Newton for leading the company through the last seven months as acting CEO and look forward to continuing to work with him in that role, until David starts. Chris will then revert to his previous role of chief finance officer.”
David, who is 46 and married with two children, will be based at NG Bailey’s head office in West Yorkshire. David comments: “I look forward to joining NG Bailey. As a company that is a leader in its field, with a fantastic reputation, I will be proud to lead it as CEO.”
