New country manager joins Hydro Building Systems

As part of Hydro’s continuing growth within the UK, Olivier Vincent joins the company as country manager. Bringing with him over 20 years of experience within the fenestration industry, Olivier will be responsible for developing the market as well as driving sales and technical organisation.

Specialising in finance, operations and sales, Olivier brings with him extensive knowledge of building systems operations, having previously worked across the Hydro Group as general manager for Technal France and chief operations officer for Sapa France. Most recently, Olivier has been successfully managing the Technal Export business and specialised industry applications under the French Askey brand.

Commenting on his new role, Olivier said: “I am looking forward to working with the UK business to drive our strategic ambitions. This is a challenging time for the business with Brexit imminent, but we are also experiencing exciting innovations within the business, such as our post-consumer scrap initiative.”
