Infrastructure Services: organisational change
01 June 2011
As part of the continuing rationalisation of Infrastructure Services, changes to the management structure of Property Services are being implemented from 1st June 2011 including a re-designation of the service to the overarching title of Infrastructure Services.
Colin Davies will assume the title of Director of Infrastructure Services, supported by Ian Webster in the role of Deputy Director and Mark Nevitt in the role of Assistant Director (Business Services). Tracey Price will become the sole Campus Development Director for the University and will support the Infrastructure Services Team until 2013. Margaret Campbell will be PA to the Director of Infrastructure Services.
The former Director of Property Services, Joe Connell, is retiring at the end of 2011 and during his remaining period of office, will deal with a number of major property matters along with instigating the preliminary professional work associated with the University’s published plans to close the IM Marsh Campus.
The PVC Infrastructure, Allan Bickerstaffe, will be retiring in March 2012 when aspects of the PVC’s duties will transfer to Colin Davies. In addition, the Executive Director, Infrastructure, Peter Hinton, will be leaving in July 2012.
The rationalisation of the Infrastructure Services Management Team is the beginning of a full review and rationalisation of Infrastructure Services, allowing for the consolidation of a number of activities within the Service. This will begin immediately, firstly with a review of Business Support functions (administration, catering, print and postal services) undertaken by Assistant Director Mark Nevitt.
