• EVO Group appoints new Director to the board

        • The holding company of the EVO group of companies has appointed Ken Williamson a Non-Executive Director. Ken’s appointment looks to strengthen the board of EVO Business Supplies Limited by bringing his senior level experience of mergers, acquisitions, financing work, and general commercial affairs.

          Ken is currently Chairman of Stoke-on-Trent based, DW3 Products Group, a strategic investor in innovative, high growth manufacturing companies in the fenestration sector. The group is backed by private equity specialists, NorthEdge Capital. 

          Ken Williamson said, “I’m joining the board at a really interesting time. The EVO group of companies are a leading player, strategically well placed and performing strongly in a sector offering exciting opportunities through channel shift and ongoing consolidation.

          “An important part of my role will involve supporting the management team as they look at a range of merger and acquisition and financing opportunities.”     

          Earlier in his career, Ken was Transactions Director of energy recruitment specialists, Air Energi. While at Air Energi, Ken led negotiations and structuring in the company’s merger with Swift Worldwide Resources.

          Ken was also a consultant and Acting Chief Finance Officer for Montagu Private Equity and a partner with Big Four accountancy practice Ernst & Young. Ken worked at Montagu Private Equity on its acquisition and subsequent carve out from banking group UBS of CEFS International. The merged business was subsequently renamed Equatex. 

          At Ernst & Young, Ken worked as a partner for almost 17 years, where he built a reputation as a Corporate Finance Advisor and sat on the management board for the transactions business as Head of Corporate Finance for UK and Ireland.

          Steve Haworth, Group Chief Executive said, “we’re delighted to have a senior and experienced professional with Ken’s background and expertise on the board. He’s certain to be a major and positive influence on our organisation as we continue to exploit current opportunities and take advantage of new openings in the years ahead.”
