Atlas appoints new cleaning MD

One of Britain’s fastest growing facilities management companies, Atlas, has announced the appointment of Ed Bolton into the newly created position of Atlas cleaning Managing Director.

Bolton has spent much of his career in commercial and operational roles in the cleaning industry and brings extensive experience gained in senior leadership positions at OCS, ISS and IAG. He has a track record of leading successful teams in large organisations, delivering service excellence and strong organic growth.

This is a new position created to support Atlas’ growth ambitions. From a turnover of around £40 million five years ago, Atlas is now a £200 million FM group. Atlas’s cleaning business is present in every region of the UK and employs around 9,000 people. Atlas as a whole employs 10,000. It has prestigious cleaning contracts in many sectors, with staff working in places as varied as corporate headquarters, football stadiums, schools and five-star hotels.

Commenting on his new role, Bolton said: “I’m delighted to be joining Atlas at this exciting time for the group. Atlas has grown rapidly into a market leader and our focus in cleaning will be to continue providing great services to our existing customers, whilst attracting new ones to support further growth. I look forward to meeting many of our people and customers over the coming weeks.”

Atlas Group MD, Chris Wisely, commented: “Atlas has grown to be a total FM company with brilliant people and capabilities. At its heart is a high quality cleaning business that Ed will now be leading. We want to be the cleaning partner of choice and bring happiness to our customers and people through excellent service delivery. I’m very pleased Ed has joined us to help deliver on that goal.”
