Compliance consultancy, OHS, has appointed John Malone as its Divisional Director for Scotland – one of three new senior appointments in the last month alone. Malone will lead and develop the Scottish division of the company, working with existing clients, such as Scottish Water, and potential new customers to ensure their property management compliance is maintained. His team will work in both occupied and unoccupied vacant properties, using all the services in the OHS portfolio.
OHS has ambitions to grow its team in Scotland to 20 staff in the next three years, comprising asbestos and water consultants, and building security experts.
Malone has worked in the asbestos industry for 15 years and in compliance for 25 years; his expertise spans compliance, health and safety and human resources. Outside of work, he is a compliance and board member of the third sector organisations Clydesdale Housing Association and Parkhead Development Company.
Andy Fowler, Managing Director at OHS said: “With John’s proven track record of growing new and existing teams quickly and successfully, as well as investing in staff to give them the broad range of skills required to offer cross service delivery to clients, we know he’s going to be a great asset to the OHS team. Scotland is a key region for OHS and with his support, we hope to rapidly add to our existing customer base.”
John Malone, OHS Divisional Director for Scotland, commented: “With my experience of helping to manage the regulatory burdens involved in risk management, I’m excited to bring the diverse and flexible solutions OHS can offer to Scottish clients who manage buildings.
“I’ve been given a fantastic opportunity to build a robust team in the region and look forward to meeting people with the relevant skills and experience to join us.”
OHS is headquartered in Manchester where it has built a purpose-built laboratory for asbestos sample analysis and air testing, and has another office in Yorkshire.
