Simon Nevitt has been appointed as Operations Director of Wienerberger, the UK’s leading provider of building material solutions, following the retirement of Tim Thompson, who had previously been with the company for over four years.

Nevitt, who will be taking on the role of Operations Director from July 1st 2018, brings with him a wealth of experience and knowledge gained from the past ten years of his previous Senior roles with Ideal Standard, a multinational bathroom, sanitary ware and plumbing fixture company. Over the past couple of months, Nevitt and Thompson have been working closely together to ensure a smooth and structured transition.

Nevitt, commented: “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.”

Over the last ten years, Wienerberger UK has delivered strong organic growth following a period of rapid acquisitions in the previous decade. This is not only a significant contributor to Wienerberger group revenue but is also enabling the industry leader to set trends and standards in areas as diverse as health and safety and the adoption of BIM (Building Information Modelling). Wienerberger UK is also spearheading the Digital Construction movement, with a specific focus on supply chain management and marketing.
