The property and people security specialists, VPS Group, has appointed Spencer Rock as its Managing Director for UK and Ireland.
With 15 years’ experience at facilities management giant, Mitie, Rock moved from being Commercial Director there in 2019 to become Chief Operating Officer at Tivoli Group, the grounds maintenance provider, whose clients range from English Heritage to the MOD.
Speaking about his new appointment, Rock said: “I am delighted to be joining VPS – it’s a company that makes such a difference for its customers, protecting both their people and assets on a daily basis. Its great professionalism has won it respect from both its peers in the industry and its clients, plus it genuinely provides a national reach with a local service. I’m looking forward to continuing to build on its sector-leading operational performance, working with the VPS family, and supporting them on this journey.”
The VPS Group has a diverse customer portfolio ranging from the majors in insurance, pubco’s, facilities managers, housing associations and local authorities for vacant property security, through to the construction and highways sectors for its site and safety provision.
Creating a positive visitor experience in a Hybrid world of work
While some personnel are finally returning to the office – the great majority of organisations (up to 83 per cent) anticipate a hybrid mix of on-premises and working from home to continue for the foreseeable future.
This means that when it comes to providing access to the workplace, where once it was simply enough to maintain a welcoming reception for visitors, organisations today must also keep a close eye on access permissions in real-time to keep buildings safe and secure while ensuring they comply with compliance.
Pitney Bowes Smart Access Management in association with FMJ has produced a new White Paper which explains how to create a welcoming, actively managed environment for authorised people.
It explains how new Smart Access Management™ (SAM) delivers a complete, real-time and data-driven view of all your people, visitors and contractors, to help give you greater control and visibility.
