Facilities services leader Bidvest Noonan has named Liz Cummins as Managing Director of its new London Security Solutions business unit. Bidvest Noonan launched the business unit in February of this year following a period of robust growth, which saw its security and front of house businesses cement leadership positions in London.
The new business unit was established to enable Bidvest Noonan to align itself more closely with its growing portfolio of clients in the capital. The business unit, which draws on the strength and resources of the Bidvest Noonan group, has the speed, flexibility and expertise needed to deliver outstanding service to its clients in the city.
As Managing Director, Cummins will lead the growth and development of the new business unit and join Bidvest Noonan's executive team. Cummins has a history of success delivering security and front of house services in London and over ten years of senior leadership experience in the facilities services industry.
Over the past 18 months, Bidvest Noonan has made a number of investments to strengthen its business and senior leadership team, including making appointments to two newly created roles, Chief Customer Officer and Chief Services Officer. The business has also increased its investment in technology and innovation. In 2021, Bidvest Noonan appointed a new Director of Technology Solutions to help the business leverage cutting-edge security technologies to deliver performance improvements and added value to clients.
Commenting on her appointment, Cummins said, "I'm delighted to join Bidvest Noonan and to lead our new London Security Solutions business unit. I joined Bidvest Noonan because I recognised that it is a business that puts people first. Our teams and clients are at the core of all our decisions. In this industry, people make all the difference. I'm looking forward to empowering our people to do their best work and achieve their professional objectives. Together, we will challenge conventions, design innovative solutions and work hard to deliver the best service and value to our clients."
CEO of Bidvest Noonan in Great Britain, Charlotte Marshall, added, "Liz's substantial executive leadership experience and deep expertise in security and front of house services make her an ideal leader for our new business unit. In addition, Liz has a history of building strong relationships with customers and delivering excellent service; I know that Liz will take this business unit from strength to strength".
