Executive Management Team

Andy Lunt

Andrew Lunt

Group Managing Director

Andrew is Group Managing Director and has been a leading figure in Salisbury Group since its founding. He is responsible for the performance of all company activities across the UK and Ireland.

Andrew brings to the role his unique career experience on both the client and provider sides of the contractual relationship. After working with Hyder and Turner & Townsend, he worked as a client advisor on one of the UK’s most complex total facilities management outsourcing projects.

In 2013, he led on the provider side as part of a landmark agreement to integrate a range of facilities services under a new company – Salisbury Group. This experience gives Andrew a key insight from both perspectives, including how to design facilities services that improve workplaces for the people who use them.

Strongly committed to learning and development, Andrew takes an active role in mentoring Salisbury’s young professionals and emerging talent. Outside of work, he is a keen tennis player and fan of the theatre.
