Nick Evans, who was brought into Victorian Sliders last year after the departure of founder Scot Starkey and a further £4million cash injection by investment group BGF, has been announced as the company’s new CEO.

Joining originally as Strategic Development Director, he came from a long career in corporate banking, predominantly in mergers and acquisitions, followed by seven years in a private equity backed business where he made a number of acquisitions and held the role of COO.

He said of his appointment: “The company has made significant strides in product quality and customer service over the past three years with the backing of proven growth funders BGF, and I’m excited to build upon that success.

“Our business model provides us with control and visibility over the end to end process from extrusion to final assembly. This, coupled with our continued investment in our premises and technology, allows us the flexibility to deal with the smaller end of the market right the way through to something of the scale of a university, whilst maintaining our exceptional product quality.”

He continued: “We are continuing to invest in technology to provide our customers with more product options and shorter lead-times, whilst also focussing on our environmental impact. 

“Our R&D team is working on some new releases for the second half of this year. It’s an exciting time for the business, our people and our customers.”

His appointment was announced last year, along with the departure of Scot Starkey and the additional investment by BGF, the investment group that had initially put £14million into the company
