Asbestos removal and enabling works providers, Rhodar, has appointed John Fitzgerald as head of its Homeworks Division, to lead its growth and develop strong, long-term relationships with its customers.
Homeworks is the specialist housing division of Rhodar and predominantly works with insurance companies and housing associations to provide domestic asbestos management services to their customers.
John, who will be based at Rhodar’s Leeds headquarters, brings over 35 years’ experience working with a number of nationally recognised blue-chip clients and successfully delivering multi-disciplined, multi-million pound framework contracts.
Previously holding senior roles with North Midland Construction and Morrison Utility Services, John was responsible for over 150 commercial and operational staff, providing clear leadership to effectively meet contractual targets.
As head of Homeworks, John is tasked with growing the division to cement its position as one of the UK’s leading asbestos removal and enabling services companies. Since his appointment, Homeworks has announced a new long-term framework contract with leading insurance company, Direct Line Group, to provide a nationwide service to its domestic policy holders.
John said: “Rhodar has an incredible industry-leading reputation and I am thrilled to be joining Homeworks to lead the next stage of the division’s growth. Rhodar Homeworks delivers a first-class service and I look forward to working with the team to build strong, long-term relationships with our customers.”
Jason Davy, managing director of Rhodar, said: “John brings a wealth of industry knowledge to Rhodar and has begun securing new opportunities, building on the success of Rhodar Homeworks’ recent national business wins.
“The Homeworks division has a very strong reputation and, under John’s strong leadership, I’m confident that we can continue to grow the division further and secure more new national contracts.”
