Titon Holdings Plc, a leading manufacturer and supplier of ventilation systems and window and door hardware, is pleased to announce the appointment of Kevin Sargeant as a Non-executive Director with effect from 1 September 2016.
Kevin is a well-known and respected figure in the ventilation industry. He joined Vent-Axia, a subsidiary of Smith Industries PLC, in 1990 and was instrumental in its growth and development until 2002 when Volution Holdings plc – including Vent-Axia – was created.
In the same year, Kevin led the buyout of Volution Holdings and became CEO of the newly formed and named Volution Group plc until its sale to Towerbrook Private Equity and management in 2012.
Since then, he has held many senior strategic development roles with major players in the ventilation sector and was Non-executive Chairman of Nuaire Ltd from November 2013 until its sale to Polypipe PLC in August 2015. Kevin qualified as a member of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants in 1980.
Keith Ritchie, Executive Chairman of Titon Holdings, said: “I am truly delighted to welcome Kevin to Titon. He is widely recognised as an expert in the ventilation sector and I believe that his valuable experience and insight will help us in enacting our strategy for growth and market penetration. He knows where we sell, at home and around the World, and he knows the industry participants – and this will benefit us greatly too.”
