Mitie has announced that Ruby McGregor-Smith is to step down from her role as a director and chief executive.


McGregor-Smith will bow out on 12 December 2016. Phil Bentley has been appointed to succeed her in the role.


McGregor-Smith has been a director of Mitie since 2002, and was appointed chief executive in 2007. 


Bentley, who takes up his post on 1 November, said McGregor-Smith had built the organisation into an “admired industry leader”.


He has previously held executive and leadership roles at Cable and Wireless Communications, British Gas, and Centrica.


McGregor-Smith said: “It has been a real honour to serve on the board of Mitie, and in particular to hold the role of chief executive.”


Mitie chairman Roger Matthews said: “Since becoming CEO [McGregor-Smith] has doubled revenue and profits, built a market-leading UK facilities management business, and been an inspiration to Mitie’s employees.”
