UK building material solutions provider, Wienerberger has announced the appointment of Simon Nevitt operations director, following the retirement of Tim Thompson, who had previously been with the company for over four years.
Mr Nevitt, who will take up thhe role from July 1, brings with him a wealth of experience and knowledge gained from the past 10 years of his previous senior roles with Ideal Standard, a multinational bathroom, sanitary ware and plumbing fixture company.
The company explained that Mr Nevitt and Tim Thompson have spent the past couple of months working closely together to ensure a smooth and structured transition.
Over the past 10 years, Wienerberger UK has delivered strong organic growth following a period of rapid acquisitions in the previous decade. This has been a “significant contributor to Wienerberger group revenue”, said the company, adding that the UK arm is also spearheading the digital construction movement, with a specific focus on supply chain management and marketing.
Simon Nevitt said of his appointment: “I’m thrilled to be taking on the role of operators director with Wienerberger, and I’m looking forward to helping develop the company’s position within the UK. It’s been wonderful working with Tim over the past couple of months, and it is no question that he is going to be sorely missed. His structured approach and strong ethos is something that I will be sure to take into my new role, and I wish him the very best of luck in his retirement.”
