Veka’s new managing director

Neil Jones will be the new managing director of Veka.

Stepping down from the role at the end of December 2020, current MD Dave Jones will work closely with sales director Neil during the last quarter before handing over the reins.

Neil joined Veka almost four years ago from Velux where he spent 10 years as UK sales director, and operations director prior to that.

During his time at Veka, Neil has reshaped the sales and customer service function, taking on added responsibility for commercial and technical departments since joining.

“Veka is a great business with huge potential and I’m honoured to be leading the business forward in our next phase of growth,” Neil said.

“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, said: “[Neil’s] experience coupled with his proven capability give me every faith that he will successfully lead the UK organisation into the future.”
