Group Executive Director at EMCOR UK
After graduating with a degree in Engineering and Business Studies, Christopher spent his early career in the oil and gas industry initially delivering construction and environmental projects for a global oil company. He then moved to an oil-sector service organisation where he led the service and maintenance businesses. This ultimately led to a move into wider service businesses, and finally into facilities management.
Christopher joined EMCOR UK in 2003, and has worked with most of the company's major customers on development activities during that time. Christopher leads the EMCOR UK FM business, providing services to customers in the pharmaceutical, healthcare, government, corporate, communications, transportation and manufacturing sectors.
Christophers passion is for building collaborative relationships with customers, colleagues and the supply chain. He sees this as essential to mutual long-term success and sustainable growth. He runs EMCOR UK's Key Account Management (KAM) programme in conjunction with Cranfield University, which is a strategic initiative dedicated to business partnering excellence. In 2010, Christopher helped EMCOR UK achieve an FM industry first - certification to a new global business standard for building collaborative relationships (BS 11000) and is a board member of the Institute for Collaborative Working (ICW). He was a member of the BSi/ISO standard review committee for the conversion to ISO44001. He has delivered key note addresses on the subject to multiple FM events, BSRIA, the AWE Platinum Partners forum, and to the US Department of Defence at the Pentagon
His involvement with ICW (previously PSL) and BS11000 goes back to 2006, when EMCOR were one of a first to pilot the framework achieving first PAS and then British Standard status.
