BIDVEST NOONAN has appointed Simon Giles as Chief Finance Officer for its business in Great Britain. The appointment strengthens the company’s senior management team following its recent acquisitions, among them Cordant Services and the Axis Group in the UK and Interact in Ireland.
A combination of organic and acquisitive growth has seen Bidvest Noonan develop leadership positions in all of its key markets across the UK and Ireland. At present, the group reports annual revenues of more than £700 million and employs over 27,000 members of staff.
Having previously served as Chief Operating Officer for Axis Cleaning and as finance director for the Axis Group, Simon will now take on a leadership role for the wider Bidvest Noonan Group across Great Britain. A qualified Chartered accountant, Giles has built up more than 20 years of experience and nurtured a proven track record for driving company performance.
Commenting on the appointment, Bidvest Noonan’s Group CFO Michael Kennedy said: “I’m delighted to welcome Simon to our team. He joins us at a key stage in our development. His wealth of financial experience and extensive facilities industry knowledge will be invaluable to us as we continue to grow our brands.”
Speaking about his new role, Simon Giles affirmed: “I’m thrilled to take on this new role and support our wider group. I’m looking forward to working with my new colleagues across all of our brands. I know that, together, we will continue to take this business from strength to strength.”
