Interserve Group has announced several appointments to its senior management team as part of the wider reorganisation of its Paragon and London and South East fit-out businesses
Interserve revealed the appointment of Mark Buckle as new divisional director for London and the South East. Mark Buckle was previously the Divisional Director for Interserve Construction in its Strategic Projects business and previously held senior roles in Mace and Bovis Lendlease.
Mark Smith, previously of Interserve Construction’s Strategic Projects and International business, has been appointed as the commercial director for the London and South East fit-out business.
Following a review process, Interserve has said it will create a more sustainable, manageable and profitable business, narrowing its strategic focus to target attractive risk-adjusted returns in the sectors where it has a market leading customer proposition, combined with the resource and expertise to deliver them profitably.
Interserve Construction has also started to wind down services that are not core to its future offering and remains focused on the successful completion and commercial close out of a small number of underperforming fit-out contracts.
George Franks, managing director of Interserve Construction, said: “Under the leadership of Mark Buckle and with a strengthened senior team, Interserve’s Paragon, and London & South East fit-out business will be more efficient and have a clearer focus on its core capabilities and service offering to clients. We believe that these changes will set the business on the path to future success.”
