New sales division heads at VADO

Published:  24 February, 2015

VADO has announced new division heads for its UK retail and export sales arms of the business.

Mark Davidge has been appointed as director of UK retail sales. Mr Davidge who has worked at VADO for the past 10 years, most recently as export director, said: “Having started my career with VADO on the UK side of the business, I was instantly drawn to the opportunity of re-joining the UK division. We are delivering impressive gains in the UK retail market, thanks in part to the support our sales managers have from the team at VADO HQ. I believe that together we can take VADO to the next level.”

With Mr Davidge’s move from export to UK, VADO has also appointed David Walsh as head of exports. Mr Walsh joins VADO with a wealth of experience from growing businesses in new and existing export markets. Mr Walsh said: “I was keen to work for VADO as I like its ethos of innovation, quality and service. During the interview process I met various members of the team and toured the company’s facilities, and it quickly became evident that VADO invests in its people. I like to work in a friendly, happy environment and VADO ticks all those boxes.”
