Head of Corporate Affairs at ISS steps down

After almost 35 years, Craig Smith, Head of Corporate Affairs at ISS, and immediate past Chair of the Hospital Caterers Association has decided that it is time to leave the business and look for new opportunities.

Joining the business as their very first caterer in 1987, Smith has played a significant role in growing the business over the years, helping develop their procurement and client retention processes as well as winning a number of contracts that formed the foundation of their public sector portfolio before moving into the corporate role.

Smith said, “I will be leaving the business 31st December with very mixed emotions. I have seen the UK become a very significant part of the ISS family and am proud that I have played my small part in its development, but now is the right time to move on and allow the new management team to implement the OneISS programme.”

Eddie Fairish, Commercial Director, ISS UK & Ireland, said, “Craig has become a familiar face across the whole of ISS in the UK and is known for being a person who, if he couldn’t help personally, could point anyone in the right direction. Craig truly embodied the values and principles of ISS and after so long with the business, he will be sorely missed by many, but we all wish him the very best for his future.”
