Daniel Dickson

Chief Executive Officer, UK & Ireland

Daniel started his career in a leading M&A consultancy firm, before moving into facilities management in 2012. He quickly excelled in the industry and became the CEO of Atalian Servest, a position he held for five years.  Following the merger between OCS and Atalian Servest in 2023, Daniel was appointed CEO of the UK and Ireland business.
