Speaking on her arrival, CEO Erwin Wieffering said:

“The Board, the Apax team and I are delighted to welcome Clarissa to the team. She will be based in our Brentford offices but will spend as much time as possible with the various branches and countries.

I have asked Clarissa to play a pivotal role in helping me and the senior management team drive our ambition by strengthening our global People strategy. Our aim is to build a world-class organisation that everyone at Safetykleen can be proud of.

Clarissa’s mission will consist of aligning the Safetykleen HR Teams, the Management Team and the Board with a strong, shared vision, creating a ONE Safetykleen culture underpinned by winning company values, and putting in place an attractive and robust talent brand and pipeline across the company.

We know that our future growth depends on our ability create an inclusive culture where people feel valued, and believe they have an opportunity to thrive.

Clarissa joins us having spent over 10 years at Skill Capital where she was a partner and latterly led the Global Business Services practice. And she has significant experience of attracting, developing, and retaining great talent in a commercially astute manner, having worked with blue-chip clients in multiple countries, and is eager to apply her expertise in her new home:

I am truly excited about joining Safetykleen and becoming a business partner to the Management, the Country Teams, working with the global Safetykleen Team to take the business to the next level again during what appears to be an exciting period of tremendous growth. Let’s make this “winning machine” even more successful with an HR function focused on helping the organisation grow through its people and achieve its strategic goals.
