Christopher Kehoe, Group Executive Director
After graduating with a degree in Engineering and Business Studies, Christopher spent his early career in the oil and gas industry initially delivering construction and environmental projects for a global oil company. He then moved to an oil-sector service organisation where he led the service and maintenance businesses. This ultimately led to a move into wider service businesses, and finally into facilities management.
Christopher joined EMCOR UK in 2003, and has worked with most of the company’s major customers on development activities during that time. Christopher also leads the facilities management services division, providing services to customers in the pharmaceutical, healthcare, government, corporate, communications, transportation and manufacturing sectors. He heads EMCOR UK’s pharmaceutical best practice group, which focuses on increasing the company's ability to provide support to and integrate with customers in the pharma/life sciences sector.
Christopher’s passion is for building collaborative relationships with customers, colleagues and the supply chain. He sees this as essential to mutual long-term success and sustainable growth. He runs EMCOR UK's Key Account Management (KAM) programme in conjunction with Cranfield University, which is a strategic initiative dedicated to business partnering excellence. In 2010, Christopher helped EMCOR UK achieve an FM industry first - certification to a new global business standard for building collaborative relationships (BS 11000) and is a board member of the Institute for Collaborative Working.
Married, with two delightful young daughters, Christopher supports his local community in a number of areas and became an elected local Councillor in 2008. He also enjoys active participation in wide range of outdoor pursuits, with varying degrees of success, and is a keen road cyclist.
