Polyteck has appointed former Macro MD Bill Heath to its board of directors.
The construction and facilities management firm has appointed Heath in the role of non-executive director where he will advise the board, support business development and help shape the company’s overall business strategy, a press statement said.
Heath, a multiple winner at the annual fmME Awards, has more than 35 years of senior level experience in the property and construction industry and moved into facilities management in the early 1990s.
Heath was a key player in establishing the regional FM industry when he set up FM company Macro in 2002.
He was then promoted to chairman of Macro and managing director of parent company Mace.
Heath resigned from his position in the summer of 2017, and was replaced by Mark Graham at the helm of affairs in Macro.
Polyteck chairman John Polycarpou was quoted by FMJ, he stated: “We are delighted to welcome Bill to our board. His experience in FM is unrivalled and we look forward to continuing to strengthen our operations across the board with Bill’s support.
“His appointment is another significant milestone in the development of our business. As a progressive company, we are always keen to continue to strengthen our team and Bill’s appointment is a real coup.”
Heath said: “I am honoured and excited to be working with the John and the Polyteck Board to assist with their business plans for the future. Having been associated with Polyteck for a number of years it is evident to me that the company is very progressive and has enormous potential to become a market leader in the FM industry.”
Polyteck operates across the public and private sector delivering a range of construction and FM services including property development and refurbishment, property maintenance, electrical services, life safety systems and HVAC services.
The firm’s annual turnover for the 12 months to December 31, 2016 was $32.3m (£23.8m), up 32% year-on-year, while profit before tax rose by 8.8% to $1.35m (£1m).
