Facilities management business Almeda has recruited four new members of staff as it gears up for further growth in 2016.

The Keynsham-based family business has appointed Tom Wailes and Mark Lloyd as facilities managers while Caroline Twose has joined as support services manager and Louise Coles as executive assistant.

In their new roles Tom, who previously worked as a contract manager for commercial property advisers CBRE, and Mark, who arrives from Mitie, will be responsible for the management of services and processes that support Almeda’s clients.

Mark said: “I admire Almeda’s approach to customer service and how they strive to exceed expectations. It’s rewarding to work in an environment like this and forge a career – Almeda are known for being great to their staff and customers; and only settling for world class. ”

Louise will be working directly with managing director Brady George and the senior management team in a supporting role, assisting them in growing and developing the business and brand further.

She joins from Bristol 2015, the organisation that initiated and delivered the city’s year as European Green Capital.

Louise is passionate about environmental responsibility and is looking forward to drawing on her previous experience to help shape the future of Almeda.

She said: “Almeda is a family business that cares deeply about their customers and staff, and they are also committed to the wider environment and sustainability in property and construction. Their passion and determination is evident as soon as you walk through the door.”

Caroline added: “It is a very exciting time for Almeda as they are growing and winning major new customers month on month. I want to grow within the company and help Almeda achieve its long-term vision.”

Managing director Brady George said: “Our new team members will play a crucial role in driving Almeda forward, particularly as we launch new services and expand into new markets in 2016 and beyond.”

The firm works across a diverse range of sectors and manages a number of iconic buildings such as the Bristol & Bath Science Park, SS Great Britain, art gallery Arnolfini and Watershed media centre.
