Academy Services appoints CEO

New CEO to spearhead business transformation.

Academy Services has announced James Pollock as CEO of its national operations.

Company founder Glen Browne said Pollock is guiding the 40-year-old company through a significant branding and transformational period that will reinvigorate the cleaning, facilities management and e-safety business.

“On behalf of the board and the whole Academy team, I would like to welcome James and look forward to seeing him drive this company into the future,” Browne said.

“We are already starting to see the benefits of James’ passion and vision for growth and development.”

Pollock’s experience prior to Academy Services includes employment in management consultancy, local government and the oil and gas field, while he is also a co-partner in development firm Hemmerling Pollock Wilson.

Pollock said Academy Services is embarking on a significant moment in its history with major growth predicted over the next three years as the company aims to reach a revenue of $120 million.

“This is an exciting time for Academy Services as we are investing significant monies into our internal systems and our customer centric branding/marketing,” Pollock said.

“We have well and truly commenced our journey to be the leading facilities services company within Australia.”

Academy has also recently introduced ERP to streamline its invoice process, while it will be operating both Kronos (time in attendance and real-time reporting) and Rapid Global (safety training and compliance for staff and contractors).

Academy will also be implementing Salesforce in the near future.

Pollock began his appointment in November.
