Sylvester had extensive experience with some of the big global names in the facility management industry. He knew he needed to be progressive and innovative to compete in the market. Neylons worked towards offering Total Facility Management services to build their impressive suite of services where they can add value for their clients. They chose to focus on a USP of quality, compliance, and innovative technology.
After leading the company as CEO for 13 years Sylvester moved to the role of Chairman and Maria Sava, previously Director of Operations, moved into the role of Chief Executive Officer. With the idea that a sign of a good leader is not how many followers you have but how many leaders you create, Maria and Sylvie together developed the Neylons Academy For Growth, providing an opportunity for every member of the Neylons team to develop and progress in the business. Having shown such a focus on the people who make the company what it is, Neylons has recently won the European Business Awards for Workplace and People Development.
