Prescot-based management and refurbishment business Vivark has added to new recruits to its management team as it bids to expand across the region.

Phil Webster joins as Group Director of Facilities and Asset Management, bringing to the directors’ team 20 years experience of strategic asset management, total facilities management, health and safety, major capital projects and technical engineering service, a spokesman for the firm said.

And Jason Tighe comes to Vivark more than 25 years experience of facilities management and refurbishment within the private and public sector, across social and private housing, banking and retail. His experience includes managing new build, refurbishment and large scale fit-out projects. As Vivark’s new Business Manager of Facilities and Asset Management, he will hold overall operational responsibility for the delivery of all of Vivark’s contracts.

Mr Webster said: “It truly is an exciting time to join Vivark as more of our customers understand just how much value Vivark can add to their businesses.

“The new appointments will bolster the team and ensure we continue to deliver on our promise to our customers each and every time.

“It’ll also allow us to continue to innovate and design bespoke packages of new services, such as Vivark Energy and Vivark Care for an increasing number of sectors and communities in which we operate.”

In addition to these changes, James Boyd, who has more than 20 years experience as part of an executive management team and working at board level, has been appointed to Vivark’s Board.

Chris Saxton, who joined the Vivark Board in 2013 and was appointed Chair in November 2014, continues to lead the management team, alongside fellow board members Collette King and Graeme Dodd.
