NG Bailey, the UK’s largest engineering and services business, has appointed John Kelly as its Group Commercial Director.
John has enjoyed a long and successful career in the engineering sector and joins the business from Imtech UK & Ireland where he also held the role of Group Commercial Director.
He has also previously held senior commercial leadership roles with Mercury Engineering, Laing O’Rourke Crown House and Wimpey/Tarmac/Carillion. He joined NG Bailey on 26 April 2021.
Speaking about his new role, he said: “NG Bailey is leader in its sector with a fantastic heritage and an exciting future ahead. I’m delighted to join the company as it celebrates its centenary year and support its continued growth and development.”
ISS Hires Nicole Ballard in Senior VP Role
ISS has hired Nicole Ballard, who will be responsible for driving growth in the firm’s Pharma & Life Sciences and Industry and Manufacturing segments.
Ballard joined the ISS Group Commercial team on April 19, 2021, as a strategic partner to the global and country-based Commercial teams as ISS works to add to its portfolio of clients. She brings an extensive record of developing solutions for clients and is based in the United States (Nashville, Tennessee), making her a key resource and subject matter expert for her ISS North America colleagues.
Before joining ISS, Ballard spent 11 years with JLL, most recently as Commercial Executive responsible for special commercial projects. She led the startup of a division in the life sciences practice that specialized in the research and development community. She also previously worked as a facilities management consultant.
WeWork Executive Joins Chargifi
Chargifi, the hybrid workplace specialist, has welcomed former WeWork executive Shaun Ritchie as a board advisor to further drive adoption of its new hybrid-working software platform.
After co-founding the workplace experience platform Teem in 2013, Ritchie oversaw the company’s growth as it became a market-leader, and helped establish this new category of enterprise software. The company was acquired by flexible workplace disruptor WeWork, in 2018.
During his tenure as Chief Workplace Experience Officer at WeWork, Ritchie helped to further define the modern vision of flexible, people-focused work patterns and spaces.
Ritchie commented: “Our working patterns and locations have been evolving for some time now. By taking an employee-first, rather than space-first, perspective, Chargifi is at the forefront of tech that supports the emergent hybrid working model. Productivity and wellbeing increasingly hinges on successfully navigating and managing the balance between home and office working.”
