The Asset Faculty Ltd, the training and development business formed as a joint venture in 2008 by Martin Pickard, Oliver Jones, Michael Fryer and the late John Davis, was acquired on the 1st August 2011 by business group Denton Business Services Ltd. DBS is owned by Martin Pickard and Penny Bruce with trading divisions including The FM Guru Training Faculty, The FM Guru Consultancy and Denton Drapes, and was already a significant shareholder in the company.
The Asset Faculty specialises in the development and delivery of bespoke training courses and materials for the facilities and property management sector. They are an Approved Training Provider of the Facilities Management Association (FMA) and a Recognised Centre for the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM)
Managing Director Martin Pickard said, “Over the last four years, the Asset Faculty has established itself as an expert provider of informed development advice, innovative support materials and inspirational training to facilities service providers and the FM community. This acquisition means that we can use that capability in conjunction with our consultancy skills to further enhance the services we provide to our combined client base. Existing contracts with The Asset Faculty are unaffected by this adjustment to ownership.”
Announcements about new training products and services will be made shortly
