Veka has announced that its new managing director will be Neil Evans. Neil, who is currently in the role of sales director at Veka, will take over from Dave Jones when he retires at the end of December 2020.
Neil joined Veka almost four years ago from Velux where he spent 10 years as UK sales director and prior to that, some years as operations director. During his time at Veka, Neil is said to have reshaped the sales and customer service function, taking on added responsibility for commercial and technical departments since joining.
Neil commented: “Veka is a great business with huge potential and I’m honoured to be leading the business forward in our next phase of growth. Being part of the broader Veka Group, a worldwide organisation, with a host of industry leading products and services, a fantastic team and some great initiatives in development; I’m thrilled to be given this opportunity. I consider myself fortunate to have a strong leadership team already in place, thanks to Dave’s legacy, and I’m looking forward to working with them as we make this great business even greater!”
Andreas Hartleif, Veka Group CEO, commented: “I am delighted that Neil has accepted the position of managing director for Veka; his experience coupled with his proven capability give me every faith that he will successfully lead the UK organisation into the future.”
Dave Jones added: “Having been part of Veka for the past 26 years, I will miss the business and its people greatly, however I leave knowing the business is in very capable hands.”
