New Victorian Sliders CEO sets sights on continued innovation and growth

Victorian Sliders, the sash window manufacturer, has announced the appointment of Nick Evans as its new Chief Executive Officer. Nick, who joined the company in August 2023 as Strategic Development Director, brings considerable experience to lead the business through its next phase of growth. Originally from a financial services background, Nick spent over 25 years in corporate banking, predominantly in mergers and acquisitions, working alongside private equity in a wide range of sectors including key investments in the building products space. 

This was followed by 7 years in a private equity backed business where he made a number of acquisitions and held the role of COO. This breadth of experience positions him perfectly to help Victorian Sliders achieve its ambitious plans for the future.

“I’m thrilled to take on the role of CEO at Victorian Sliders,” Nick comments.

“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.”

The business occupies a unique position in UK fenestration, as the country’s most vertically integrated sash window manufacturer. “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.”

Innovation is not confined to the state of the art manufacturing facility, with the company now providing an optional upgrade to its highly popular ECOSlide window to allow it to achieve exceptional U-values as low as 1.2. Nick continues: “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.”
