EMCOR UK bolsters executive team to deliver new strategy



EMCOR UK has strengthened its executive team with the creation of a decision-making group that will drive the overarching strategy and vision of the business. The executive board will be chaired by new CEO Cheryl McCall following her promotion from CFO. The other five members are:

  • Ian Meaden, chief operating officer
  • Dave Parker, chief strategy officer
  • Rebecca Paterson, chief marketing officer
  • Tom Paterson, chief financial officer
  • Dylan Wickenden, chief people officer

The COO and CSO roles are both newly created to reflect EMCOR UK’s operational objectives. Meaden and Parker both joined EMCOR UK as apprentices so have a deep understanding of the business and excellent relationships with customers. Meaden will take ownership of all customer accounts within the business, while Parker will own the strategy and bring new products and services to the market.

The executive board creates a forum for a collaborative approach to strategic decision making that will support EMCOR UK’s growth plans.

In the immediate future, the focus will be on delivering EMCOR UK’s products and services to recognise the evolving needs of its customers, with a constant eye on innovation to react to the changing workplace landscape. EMCOR UK will lean on its strategic expertise in asset management, carbon, and workplace management, underpinned by data-driven insights, to enhance and optimise customers’ facilities.

Cheryl McCall, CEO at EMCOR UK, said: “The executive board will play a critical role in ensuring we stay true to our vision of innovating workplaces and engineering excellence. We have a fantastic mix of personalities and experience on the board, with a blend of long-time and newer employees, which will be vital in maintaining EMCOR UK as a leader in FM and workplace. A collaborative approach has always been central to how we operate, and we’ll continue working with customers and partners to create shared outcomes that make a better world at work for all of us."
