Max Steward has returned to ISG after three years at London fit-out rival

Steward has taken up the role of managing director of ISG’s Agility business, specialising in the South East’s sub 50,000 sq ft fit-out market.

Former Agility managing director Nick Oddy takes up a new role on ISG’s UK Fit-Out board to focus on strategic growth and diversification.

Returning to ISG to build on his previous 11-year tenure, Steward will focus on growing and diversifying the £100m turnover fit-out business within complementary and emerging sectors.

He said: “When ISG launched the Agility business just seven years ago, there was a clear market demand for a highly experienced and innovative contractor, responding to the exacting requirements for fast-paced, high-quality fit-out projects with the same level of skill and support defined by much larger value schemes.

“The Agility business is now firmly established in the South East, and the next stage in our development is to both grow our existing share of projects in core sectors, while exploring opportunities in new markets.

“All this while ensuring that our focus on customer experience, innovation and delivery excellence remains at the heart of our operating model.”

After successfully leading the Agility business for over three years, Oddy’s new remit sees him developing a long-term strategy for growth and diversification across ISG’s entire fit-out business.

Oddy added: “The UK fit-out market remains buoyant and the specialist skillset of our Fit Out and Agility teams are in high, and growing demand. Inward investment within the UK is increasingly more geographically diverse and we are alert to the demand and opportunity this represents.

“Building relationships for the long term has always been an integral part of ISG’s DNA and my new role will explore how we can connect with those new markets and sectors that are going to drive our business and the UK economy forward over the decades ahead.”
