EVO Group has appointed the head of its Premier Vanguard business as the new Chair of the Complete reseller business.
Dominic De Luca has led jan/san supplier Premier Vanguard for the past 23 years. It was purchased by EVO in 2019 and since then its run-rate EBITDA has doubled, despite the challenges of COVID.
With the initial Premier Vanguard earnout period coming to an end and the recent acquisition of Complete, EVO said the timing was right to make this appointment. De Luca will continue to lead Premier Vanguard, but will share his expertise and experience with the Complete management team.
EVO CEO Andrew Gale called the move an “excellent appointment for all sides”, adding: “It provides a fresh challenge for Dominic, and his experience and commercial savvy will provide sensible guidance and counsel for the refreshed Complete senior management team.
“During H1, we have reshaped the Complete business within the EVO business, completing our integration and synergy workstreams. We are now positioned to grow our sales and margin in the months ahead, and Dominic and John Barker’s (Complete Managing Director) senior team are fully focused on this task.”
