UAP STRENGTHENS MANAGEMENT TEAM

(L-R): Tim Fairley, David Pearson, Stewart Lamb, Pat Rice and Bonnie Hodson.

UAP Limited has made several key appointments to broaden its management team.  Significant investment from asset manager, Maven Capital Partners, has enabled the hardware specialist to attract high-level individuals from the fenestration industry and beyond.

Former managing director of Wickes, David Pearson joins UAP as chairman.  Tim Fairley, formerly managing director of Performance Doorset Solutions takes on the role of group commercial director; Stewart Lamb, former managing director at VITA is named as the company’s export sales director; Pat Rice formerly sales director at Masco joins as commercial director and Bonnie Hodson from Trutex is appointed as chief financial officer.

David Jennings, founder and former managing director of UAP, continues as CEO, an appointed role following the buy-out by Maven Capital Partners in 2018.

“The new team has breadth and depth, and is without question amongst the best in the industry,” says David.  “They bring high quality door manufacturing, specification, retail, commercial and financial experience to complement our already strong management team.  We will be encouraging customers to draw on our collective knowledge and experience, and benefit from this core strength.”
