Specialist FM recruiter, Eden Brown Built Environment, has given Keith Glennister an ambassadorial role.

Glennister, who in his spare time offers mentoring to those in and who want to join the FM profession, had run the massive Citi contract for ISS UK, ROI since 2010.

Glennister is a member of the Institute of Directors where he celebrated with Eden's senior management team last week as agreement was reached. He will be playing a significant role in the growth of the FM business. As part of the partnership, he will be engaging with senior leaders and operators through various networking events and conferences, mentoring consultants, whilst also sitting on interview panels for executive appointments.

Glennister said: “It was an easy decision not to go in to fulltime retirement. I will be supporting clients and candidates alike as we look to boost the profile of the FM business and take it to the next level."

Eden Brown’s Associate Director of FM, Deborah Longstaff added: “Throughout 2017 and beyond, Keith will be on hand to provide strategic insight and knowledge - the subject matter expert we turn to for support on all matters within the FM arena.”


Citi loss

The scale of the Citi contract that Glennister has retired from is vast. There are about 12,000 staff and tenants working from two large office buildings in Canary Wharf. This totals about 1.8 millionsq.ft. The contract is for all FM services apart from catering, security and mailroom services. 300 ISS staff work on the account.
