Macro celebrates 15 years of success

Macro celebrated 15 years of growth and success in September this year. The international facilities management company was founded in 2002, as part of the consultancy and construction group, Mace.

In the last decade and a half, Macro has grown from nothing to a market-leading facilities management practice with a global blue-chip client list and an enviable reputation. In 2017/18 the company is on track to turn over £130m in annual revenue across 40 countries, it’s most successful year to date. 

Macro was founded to be a modern-thinking company with a flexible approach, creating tailored solutions for international clients. It now serves clients out of five global hubs, and in the last twelve months has started delivering operations in six new counties, including Pakistan and Chile. 

Key to Macro’s growth has been its commitment to building long-term relationships with global clients who share the same progressive ethos. Notable clients include Invesco – with whom Macro has worked for the entirety of its 15-year history – and Standard Chartered Bank, whose global presence has recently driven Macro in to a number of new territories. 

Ross Abbate, Macro’s Managing Director, said:

“The success of the last 15 years is a real testament to the hard-work and ambition of our people – and I’m so proud of how far we’ve come. Despite our huge expansion we’ve stayed true to our founding ethos and can deliver at scale while retaining flexibility, working closely with our clients to deliver responsive solutions that meet their needs.  

“We aren’t resting on our laurels: we’re planning carefully to make the next 15 years as successful as the last. We’re going to continue to focus in our niche markets, developing and delivering multi-regional solutions for forward thinking clients. We’re working hard to find the next progressive clients across the world who are looking to work with a company like Macro to build a global footprint.”

Mark Reynolds, Mace’s Chief Executive, said: 

“Macro is certainly one of Mace’s success stories – in just 15 years, we have grown a global market-leading facilities management business, which has a fantastic reputation for service and delivery. That’s down to the strength and quality of the Macro people. They are a key part of the Mace family, and I’m very proud of what the team has achieved. I’m sure the next fifteen will be even more impressive – I look forward to watching Ross and his team go from strength to strength.”
