Scott Holdsworth will head up a new maintenance department providing scheduled servicing and maintenance for all plant and systems installed by the company in its multi-million-pound UK-wide building services projects.

Based at J S Wright’s headquarters in Aston, Birmingham but also serving the company’s offices in Bristol and London, Mr Holdsworth has almost 18 years’ experience in building services maintenance.

Mr Holdsworth, who lives in Solihull, previously worked for a multinational support services company as a senior facilities manager on contract with the BBC, where he resourced and managed a drive for high-quality performance and led local facilities management delivery teams across all FM disciplines.

For the past six years, he was responsible for the BBC’s major facilities at Evesham, including its broadcast and distribution-critical buildings and Academy devoted to journalism, production and technology training.

A qualified electrical services engineer with a Managing Safety qualification from the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health, Mr Holdsworth will be part of J S Wright’s Health & Safety, Quality and Aftercare team led by associate director Toby Guise.

Marcus Aniol, managing director of J S Wright, said: “We are delighted to welcome such an experienced manager to lead our new maintenance department, which has been created in response to the many requests we have received from clients and occupiers of new-build apartments to service and maintain the equipment we have installed, and for which our customers have become responsible.”

He added: “Initially, we will offer planned maintenance and servicing to minimise any defects in plant and systems that we have installed, but this may lead to offering a broader scope of services in the future.”
