Hat-trick of key appointments
Door manufacturer Vista has completed a hat-trick of high-profile new appointments.
Haydon Statham joins the Merseyside firm as its new national sales manager, bringing with him experience from previous roles within major systems companies and door manufacturers.
“I am really excited by the opportunity to work with a leading manufacturer like Vista, their focus on quality and service was a huge pull for me,” Haydon said. “I was also really struck by the enthusiasm of all their staff, and the positive energy that’s found in the factory.”
Also joining is HR specialist Anne Williams from Jaguar Land Rover. Anne’s remit as HR manager is to aid the senior management in supporting and growing Vista’s talented team of more than 100 people. Anne will focus on the industry-wide skills shortage by looking at new areas of recruitment and sourcing the right candidates.
“We need long-term staff that we can invest in and train up to be the next generation of talented personnel,” Anne said. “Our employees are important to us and they are integral to the continuing growth and success of Vista. We will continue our open communication with our employees as we introduce new engagement initiatives at Vista.”
Vista has also welcomed Liam Barnes as quality manager. Also joining from the automotive industry, Liam will look to improve Vista’s operation, as well as managing Vista’s ISO 9001:2008 quality management, ISO 14001:2004 environmental management, and OHSAS 18001:2007 health and safety management accreditations.
Keith Sadler, managing director of Vista, said: “All three appointments are incredibly talented and bring a wealth of experience to the business, with Haydon bringing a new insight to the industry and both Anne and Liam providing a fresh approach to the challenges of a leading door manufacturer.”
