ISG has announced today that Paul Cossell will take over as the company’s new CEO, succeeding David Lawther who stepped down from the role after a 10-year tenure. Paul Cossell has been at ISG for 20 years, and managing director of ISG’s highly-successful Fit Out and Engineering Services business since 2011.
Paul has overseen the transformation of ISG’s Fit Out business to be the market leader in London. He was also the driving force behind ISG’s rapid entry into the international data center construction market. Last year, Paul’s business was recognised by the Chartered Management Institute as one of the UK’s Top 50 rated companies for productivity.
Commenting on Paul’s appointment, outgoing CEO, David Lawther, said:
“I am pleased to leave the company at a time when it faces a new and exciting future as a private entity. Paul has an impressive track record of growing profitable businesses in ISG and I wish him the very best in his new role. I have every confidence that the company will go from strength to strength under his leadership.”
Paul Cossell commented:
“I feel incredibly privileged to be appointed CEO of this great business as we embark upon the next stage of our journey under private ownership. We are by nature ambitious and innovative at ISG, and under our new ownership we have the opportunity for significant growth. We will build on our market-leading credentials to be recognised as the best brand in the construction sector, offering an unbeatable customer experience.”
“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank David for the great contribution he has made to ISG after 15 years with the business and wish him the very best for the future.”
