Higson said, “His focus on operational and commercial excellence along with his people-first approach, means that he is well-placed to lead the Algeco UK business and help to deliver our medium-term plan.”

Dorling added, “I am delighted to have joined Algeco, an organisation that has solid foundations built on excellence, innovation and collaboration.

“The strong team of people and competitive positioning of the business means that I am confident we can continue to achieve great things on behalf of our customers.”

“We have a major role to play in delivering the Group’s Sustainable Strategy through our commitment to innovation and collaborative relationships.

I look forward to working with all our stakeholders to make a lasting positive impact on the built environment.”
