He will be responsible for G4S FM, a leading facilities management business which employs more than 7,200 staff across the UK, Ireland, Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. G4S FM delivers integrated facilities management, security, front of house, hard FM, cleaning, catering and service desk services in the corporate, healthcare, education and central government sectors.
Jones has more than 23 years’ experience in the property, facilities management and engineering sector at national and international level. He was most recently MD of CBRE’s integrated facilities management business across EMEA.
Prior to that, he held several leadership roles in his eight years at Carillion, with responsibilities including infrastructure services, property services and facilities management.

His expertise includes business leadership, market growth and acquisition, client relationship management, major outsourcing and real estate and facilities change.
“At G4S, I will have the opportunity to grow our FM business in the UK and Ireland and help to develop our overall FM offering in other key markets, as clients are increasingly looking for us to provide additional integrated solutions,” said Jones.
