Peter Johnson retires from Vicaima
Published: 09 June, 2014
Peter Johnson has announced that he will retire as managing director of Vicaima at the end of June 2014.
Mr Johnson is a well-known figure throughout the timber door industry, having started out his career with Crosby Doors in the late 60’s in a technical capacity; he soon became operations director and latterly deputy managing director. From Crosby he moved to veneering specialists, Midland Veneers where he became managing director, before joining Vicaima in 1996.
Mr Johnson has been instrumental in the development of Vicaima UK, from a relatively small subsidiary within the Vicaima Group globally, to the major manufacturer and distributor of fashionable European door solutions it has become today. As a keen advocate of properly certified Fire Doors, Mr Johnson has also served as chairman of the BWF-Certifire scheme.
Barry Waddell will takeover from Mr Johnson as the new Vicaima UK managing director. “As commercial director with Vicaima since 2012, Barry is well placed to take on the challenges ahead and steer future growth to capitalise on the ever growing demand for Vicaima’s range of quality interior door solutions,” said Group chairman Arlindo C Leite.
