Veka MD to step down

Veka UK’s MD Dave Jones has announced that he will be retiring at the end of December 2020 after 26 years with the company.

The Burnley based systems house says that steps are already in place to recruit a successor to ensure ‘a seamless transition’ at the end of the year.

Dave said: “I’ve enjoyed a fantastic and fulfilling career at Veka Burnley, first as operations manager, then operations director before spending the last 13 years as managing director.

“My working life spans almost 44 years to this point and I feel that now is the right time to step down as Veka UK’s managing director and hand over the leadership of the business.

“Veka Burnley is a great business and I have found it a privilege to work here. Whoever takes over from me will find themselves at the head of a dynamic firm which has both a rich heritage and an exciting future.

“Both the global Veka Group and Veka UK have been through many changes over the years and playing a small part in the company’s ongoing success story has been a great honour. I count myself very lucky to have been part of the Veka journey and to have worked with such excellent and dedicated people. I am immensely proud of our achievements together.”
