New Business Development Director appointed in the South

Adrian Canale

We have recruited a new Business Development Director to head up our continued expansion into the South.

Adrian Canale, who has worked extensively in facilities management across a range of sectors, has been appointed to support our continued business development and also bring the company into new sectors including education and healthcare.

Adrian, who is based near Milton Keynes, previously worked for security specialist VSG (now part of MITIE) and Carlisle Support Services.  Alongside his wealth of previous experience and knowledge, Adrian will be focused on creating awareness of Westgrove’s key USP, Synergy by Westgrove, a value-add based service provision which brings tangible benefits, innovation and cost savings to a range of service Partners.

This innovative approach has seen a number of significant contract wins in 2019 as the company approaches over £4M new business in the first half of the year. The Southern expansion includes the appointment of Adrian and the opening of a Southern office at the end of 2019. 

We specialise in providing security, cleaning and customer services in high footfall destinations such as Shopping Centres, Corporate, Mixed Use and Retail environments across the UK.

Laurie Barton Wright, Brand & Development Director, said: “Due to the rapid growth of the business in the south last year, we felt it was the right time to build on our presence as a UK wide operation. Adrian will be a pivotal part of this strategy and add real value to the business.”

Adrian said: “I’m looking forward to building on this success and becoming part of such a forward thinking and successful company whose values and beliefs align with mine.”
