CHICAGO, July 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cushman & Wakefield announced today that Paul Bedborough has been promoted to the role Chief Executive of C&W Services, one of the largest facilities services businesses in North America. Bedborough, who joined the firm in 2014, previously served as President of C&W Services.
C&W Services self performs facilities services including maintenance, critical environments, janitorial, office and mail room and moving, serving more than 600 leading commercial, industrial, educational and public venue clients across North America. Last year, C&W Services was uniquely branded so it can compete and differentiate in its marketplace but maintain sufficient likeness to the Cushman & Wakefield brand in order to be a seamless piece of the broader firm's vertically integrated services. With revenues nearing $1 billion, it is one of the largest and most successful facility services businesses in North America.
"Paul has made significant contributions to our business, and the title of Chief Executive reflects the strategic importance and prominence C&W Services has in our overall organization," said Tod Lickerman, Global President of Cushman & Wakefield. "Under his leadership, C&W Services gives the Cushman & Wakefield platform the ability to improve the operations and occupant experience of our client's properties."
"We provide our clients with exceptional, tailored facility services that improve the value of the property and deliver a total quality service experience. Each & every day more than 14,000 of our employees go to work and make a positive impact in our client's environment," Bedborough said. "The momentum we've created over the past two years has been phenomenal, but it's only the beginning chapter of our industry's most compelling growth story, we have a tremendous opportunity to continue to grow in our industry."
Bedborough brings more than 16 years of executive experience to his new role and has an extensive track record of driving enterprise operational excellence, improving customer satisfaction and increasing profitability across the Americas and globally.
