Casualty of G4S Olympic fiasco powers into a new job at Aggreko
Friday 22 February 2013
One of the men who quit in the wake of G4S’s Olympic security fiasco today joined power-generator supplier Aggreko.
David Taylor-Smith resigned from his role as chief operating officer at G4S last year alongside Ian Horseman-Sewell, head of the group’s global events business.
He had spent 14 years at the group but took a share of the blame for the company’s failure to deliver enough staff for the 2012 Games.
Aggreko said Taylor-Smith will head its European, Middle Eastern and African business, and will sit on the board. Chief executive Rupert Soames said: “We are delighted David will be joining Aggreko. He brings with him a wealth of international experience and has proved his ability to build and manage very large businesses.”
Aggreko supplied temporary power to the 2012 Olympics. According to analysts, the unit Taylor-Smith will run accounts for about 42% of group sales.
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Caroline de La Soujeole said: “He has the calibre and required experience to help take the group forward.”
