BAM Construct UK chief executive Graham Cash said: “Kath Fontana’s appointment as managing director of BAM’s facilities management business signals our ambition to extend our reach in the FM sector. Kath will lead a significant expansion of our FM business over the next five years. Our aim is to win a broader base of clients and extend the services we provide to them. It is a logical development for a company like ours that understands how buildings such as schools, universities and offices work.”
