Emrill names Philippa Carman as head of business development
With more than 10 years’ experience, she will be responsible for developing winning strategies in the bidding process
UAE-based facilities management services provider, Emrill, has promoted Philippa Carman as the firm’s head of business development.
With more than 10 years’ experience in the industry, Carman will be responsible for developing and executing winning strategies in the bidding process to enable Emrill to convert opportunities into successful, profitable contracts.
Carman has spent six years with Emrill and has held the roles of bid manager, work winning manager, head of work winning and, following her most recent promotion, head of business development.
She has been involved in winning major contracts for the firm including a six-year contract renewal with Dubai Airports.
Commenting on her promotion, Carman said while every sector has its challenges, she was confident Emrill has a very bright future.
“Due to COVID-19, we have certainly needed to adapt. “We have used this period to assess our ongoing strategy and focus on what we want to achieve in 2020 and beyond,” said Carman.
“In the coming 18 months, we will continue to nurture our relationships with existing clients and forge connections with new clients, offering integrated facilities management solutions into a diverse range of sectors, including residential, commercial, mixed-use, retail and aviation.”
Carman will report directly to Emrill CEO Stuart Harrison, who said Carman was a “clear choice” for the position and was identified as the strongest candidate to lead Emrill’s strategic business development and work winning department to support the company’s ongoing growth plans.
