Leading UK business supplies reseller Banner has announced the identity of its new Managing Director.
Parent company EVO has chosen an internal candidate, promoting Viv Slater to the role. Slater joined Banner in 2015 as Corporate Sales Director, a role that included managing the acquisition and integration of the Staples UK book of business in 2020.
Slater first joined the OP industry in 1991, working in sales for Guilbert before moving to office2office in 2000. She has also held management positions at F&B Partnership and PHS Data Solutions.
EVO CEO Andrew Gale called Slater “the logical choice” to head Banner, saying she had led the Corporate team “with distinction” over the past few years.
“I’m confident that Banner will deliver further profitable growth under her leadership and I believe that she is the right person to lead [the business] on the next phase of the journey,” Gale commented.
