A Leeds multi-service provider has appointed a new Framework and Portal Manager to further strengthen its bid team and capacity to tender for higher value projects.

Servo Group has appointed Suzie Killip who has more than a decade’s worth of experience in procurement and frameworks, with particular expertise in construction.

Suzie was previously Lead Project Coordinator at Bingley-based, STRI Group at Bingley-based, sports turf consultancy, STRI Group. She has a wealth of experience coordinating risks, resources and communications on domestic and overseas projects and has played a pivotal role in some major global stadia developments. Previously Suzie completed A Levels at Jerudong International school, a private boarding school in Brunei, Southeast Asia.

In her role at Servo, Suzie will be an integral part of the bid team, tendering for high-value projects and frameworks across the company’s multi-disciplines, which include security, CCTV, construction, facilities management, and rail labour. She will be working alongside Servo’s Head of Compliance, Jack Hill and recently appointed Bid Manager, Laura Bacon.

Laura joined Servo in July, with over fifteen years’ experience in commercial bid writing, public relations and copywriting for private sector and not-for-profit organisations including University College London and Coinbox/Redstar.

Servo’s CEO, Andrew McCallion said: “Suzie is a fantastic addition to our sales and bid team and we’re confident that she is going to play a huge part in our growth over the next few years as we steer the Group to the next phase of expansion.”

Servo is building a bid team to work alongside its existing sales and commercial team, sourcing new, high-value tender opportunities and frameworks, particularly in security, facilities management and construction and further facilitating the firm’s fast growth.

In the past seven years since its inception, Servo has enjoyed fast, national growth taking on a host of high-profile clients around the country. Suzie’s appointment is the latest in a raft of additions, which also included the promotion of new non-executive director, Paige Grimes, the company’s youngest ever director at just 25 last month.

The multi-service provider, which has over 1000 operatives working around the country is on target to achieve a £20 million turnover in the next 12 months, and possible flotation.

Suzie Killip said: “I’m delighted to be part of such an outstanding team and an amazing, fast-growing company. With my background in bids and procurement, and Servo’s track record and solid accreditations, I’m confident we can achieve some brilliant framework and tender wins to propel the company even further.
