ISS recently announced several appointments and structural changes to the company’s executive leadership team, effective January 1, 2022.

Pierre-Francois Riolacci, CEO of ISS Europe, announced his departure from the organization. The company’s Europe region, which had been managed as one business division, will be organized and managed as two separate regions: Northern Europe—consisting of Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg (Belux), and Poland and Lithuania (PoBa)—and Central and Southern Europe—consisting of France, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Spain, and Turkey.

Germany will operate as its own separate country division, lead by Group chief operating officer (COO) Troels Bjerg. Carl-Fredrik Bjor, currently country manager for ISS Norway, has been appointed CEO of the Northern Europe division. Bjor was also named a member of ISS Executive Group Management. Celia Liu has been named CEO of ISS Central and Southern Europe.
