VBH (GB) has promoted Sales Director Simon Monks to the position of Managing Director from 1st of January 2018. Current Managing Director Peter Rowlands, who has been in the position for the last 10 years, moves into the newly created position of Business Development Director. Simon will become responsible for leading the VBH team through the next phase of business development and growth, as well as the overall day-to-day running of the business.

In his new role as Business Development Director, Peter will be responsible for the development of VBH’s own brand, greenteQ, and managing the VBH engineering team in the Far East. He will also be working with VBH’s branded hardware partners, as well as existing and new customers to develop new business opportunities and partnerships.  Peter comments: “In an ever-changing window and door hardware market, it is vital for businesses that they do not stand still, but can reshape and adjust with market trends as well as creating opportunities in new markets.

“Simon and I have been with VBH since 2007, and during that time we have seen many positive changes in both the company and the industry. The management team at VBH has worked hard to shape the business into the innovative, customer and service driven company that we are today. I would like to thank all of our customers, suppliers and employees for their support during my time as MD, and to join me in congratulating Simon on his thoroughly-deserved promotion.”
