SES restructures for future growth
With the setting up of a new divisional structure, SES plans to take on board larger and more complex projects. This is the £21 million Whitehall Riverside office development in the heart of Leeds, with a specialist 100 ft crane lifting into the rooftop plant area a containerised UPS, standby generator, air-handling units and air-conditioning condensing units.
Building-services provider SES has restructured its operations. The company now has two divisions, north and south, which replace the former three regions. A work-winning team has also been set up, comprising business development, marketing and public-relations, estimating and cost planning. As part of this change, the company will increasingly focus on risk and commercial management. Each division has its own board and managing director, allowing the opportunity to grow. Mark Perkins will head the southern division, which incorporates the previous central and southern regions. Peter Lewis is managing the northern division, The work-winning team is led by business director David Mason. Both managing directors and the business director report to the chief executive officer Allan McDougall. The new division will be able to take on larger and more complex projects, with better access to people’s individual skills and expertise. This has already allowed for a significant number of internal promotions, including a new level of operational directors and divisional business directors. SES has also reviewed its corporate objectives linked to its vision statement, instead looking to adopt a number of values including innovation, safety, quality, and honesty and integrity. Allan McDougall comments, ‘The next few years promise to be very exciting for SES. We are already a leading business in our sector, and the two new divisions, alongside the work-winning team, will ensure that we are in a position to remain the preferred supplier of building services to our clients.
