New energy head sparks growth at Core

Core Facility Services has launched its new financial year with the appointment of Dru Widdowson as head of its energy division.

The move follows a recent merger with Huddersfield based FM Energy to bolster the firm’s energy management division as part of its UK-wide expansion plans. 

Dru will be charged with developing the existing energy management team, effectively doubling its size in the next 12 months.

As well as energy, Core manages waste, IT and estates on behalf of its clients, providing a full facilities management service to drive operational efficiency and sustainability.

Core managing director Colette Watts said: “Dru will be responsible for appointing and onboarding four people into the new business team imminently, with further additional roles planned during 2020.

“We are delighted that our clients will benefit from Dru’s energy market knowledge and his considerable experience in helping local businesses secure significant cost and efficiency savings,” she added.

Dru said: “Core already has a strong energy team with a huge amount of in house expertise and the ambition to take its successful formula to a wider audience.

“I will be making sure we recruit the right people to achieve those goals and that as many organisations as possible benefit from reduced overheads and improved sustainability,” he said.
