JLA's New Corporate Team
JLA has recently strengthened its corporate team with the recruitment of a Corporate Development Director (Sam Irving), Corporate Development Manager (Alistair Clarke) and a new Head of Legal (Stephanie Beat).
JLA is the UK’s leading critical asset supply & service business offering end-to-end solutions in laundry, catering, infection control, compliance & safety and consumables. Since 2013 JLA has made 11 acquisitions across the laundry and catering sectors. Putting the customer first has always required a flexible approach to acquisitions, from maintaining an autonomous business unit through to full integration; the decision is driven by the specific customer service requirements. With the new Corporate team in place, the pace of growth is set to accelerate.
JLA’s Sam Irving is excited about the opportunity:
“With the full support of our Board and HgCapital, we have the mandate and team in place to really drive acquisitive growth across our existing business streams and into related areas such as heating, fire and security. We are all looking forward to getting out into the market.”
The next few years at JLA are set to be transformational with a number of organic, partnership and acquisitive growth opportunities already identified.
