Senior industry figurehead, Martin Gammon, has been appointed as non-executive director at Bonasystems, the UK-based market leader in specialist floorcare products, anti-slip solutions and consulting. Formally announced today by Steven Phillips, Managing Director at Bonasystems, Martin will play a pivotal role in the growth strategy for the company with plans in place to secure larger contracts over the next three to five years.
Martin’s appointment comes at a crucial time for Bonasystems, which added several prestigious accounts to its client portfolio last year including Mitchells & Butlers plc. In 2017 Bonasystems is aiming to increase its market share considerably in sectors such as hospitality and retail, but also gain a significant foothold in healthcare and education markets.
Steven Phillips, CEO of Bonasystems, explains: “To attract a non-executive director of such skill and experience is a testament to Bonasystems’ reputation and heralds an exciting new phase for the business. A business is only as good as the choices it makes and so it is vital to have the best people possible in crucial positions.
I am therefore delighted that Martin is bringing his talent, vision, contacts and enormous experience from within the facilities management industry to our board, and this will be invaluable to our business going forward. Importantly, he has significant previous experience of helping businesses to scale, which is essential to us as we look to break through to the next level of our growth.”
From 2009-2014, Martin was Chief Executive Officer, UK & Europe for OCS Group, one of the UK’s largest facilities management companies, with a turnover of over £500 million and 27,000 staff. Before this he set up, grew and then sold two companies over a 12-year period. Martin now runs his own consultancy business, MG Associates (UK) Ltd. He also has a number of other directorships, including as non-executive Director of Principle Cleaning Services.
Martin will be offering strategic advice to Bonasystems on its business growth strategy and will help lead Bonasystems into its next exciting chapter. Mr Gammon assumed the role on 1st January 2017. He said; “I’m delighted to have been appointed as a non-executive director to Bonasystems’ board. It’s an important and exciting time for the business in terms of growth and strategic positioning. I’m looking forward to working with a company with strong core values, high calibre clients, and a desire to grow.”
