Vivalda Sets Out Expansion Plans and New Leadership for 2023

VIVALDA GROUP, distributors of architectural rainscreen facades, has confirmed its new growth plan for 2023.

The plan follows the appointment of a new Group CEO and a new management structure for the £40m turnover business.

In January 2023, former Wolseley plc director, Andy McEwan was appointed as Vivalda Group CEO. In the same month, at the company’s annual sales conference, he laid out plans to expand the business in three areas: growing the product range, attracting new customers, and building new branches.

Meanwhile, it was also confirmed that Peter Johnson will continue as Group Chairman and majority shareholder, and former Managing Director, Ben Jayes, will continue to play a roving role across the group and retain an interest as a key shareholder and plc board member.

Group Chairman, Peter Johnson, said: “Having made it through the last recession, the financial crisis, Brexit, the pandemic and the recent hikes in energy costs, we continue to be a profitable, successful enterprise that puts its people first. However, having achieved a turnover of £40m this year, we know that to get to the next level the business needs an input of new ideas along with the right leader to implement them.

“Having spent nearly a year searching for the right person I am delighted to have confirmed Andy McEwan’s position as Group CEO. Andy has an unrivalled track record within the construction products sector cutting his teeth at Wolseley plc, and more recently fulfilling a senior role within VPS, the site security specialist. Andy brings fresh thinking and real passion to Vivalda Group as we embark on the exciting next phase of its growth, and all the while retaining our strong values of professionalism, integrity and teamwork.”

New Leadership for 2023

New Group CEO, Andy McEwan, said: “With 11 locations across the UK, Vivalda has a tremendous reputation as the UK’s leading supplier of non-flammable rainscreen cladding systems. Now approaching its 25th anniversary, the business has a very positive culture, which is reflected in its approach to customers and suppliers alike. Given this strong foundation, I believe there are significant opportunities for the business to expand, most notably in terms of the range of products it offers, the customers it serves and the geography from which it operates.

“Looking ahead, there are huge opportunities for Vivalda to operate much more as a single entity while getting even closer to suppliers and customers.”

Vivalda Group is involved in the distribution, fabrication and manufacture of non-flammable rainscreen cladding systems. The company employs over 160 people across its operations in Birmingham, Cheltenham, Dublin, Glasgow, Hull, Leeds, Manchester, London and Swanley.
