ISS UK & Ireland has announced the appointment of Scott Davies as its CEO, effective 1 January 2024.
Davies will join the board of ISS’s Northern Europe and UK & Ireland Area, reporting to CEO, Carl-Fredrik Bjor
Davies will work closely with Jo Roberts, CFO and interim CEO of ISS UK & Ireland, and her Country Leadership Team (CLT) to ensure a smooth and orderly handover of responsibilities.
In his 10-year career at ISS Group, Davies has held several senior leadership roles. Most recently, he was Regional CEO of Asia Pacific, where he was also a member of the Group EGM.
Under his stewardship, Asia Pacific developed sector and key account strategies for each market, strengthened the commercial engine room of growth – improving hit rates and average deal sizes – and enhanced the quality and size of the pipeline. Scott has a passion for attracting and developing talent, building capability and teams by bringing the strategy and the employee value proposition to life through values, diversity & inclusion.
Prior to joining the company, Davies had built up a proven track record over a 20-year career working in the hospitality industry across Asia Pacific, most notably with leading global player Accor Hotels in Australia, Hong Kong, China and India.
“After an immensely enjoyable 10 years in the Asia Pacific region, where we have successfully executed the OneISS strategy and established a quality platform for future growth, I am honoured to be given the opportunity to lead the UK and Ireland region as it enters a hugely exciting period and seeks to build on the momentum of 2023,” Davies said.
“At the heart of the business is its people. I look forward to working with Carl-Fredrik, Jo and her team, and my soon-to-be colleagues across Northern Europe, particularly in the UK & Ireland.”
