Steve Archibald, sales director for distribution at Vent-Axia, will be leaving the company in August to pursue a new opportunity that enables him to relocate back to Scotland.

Replacing Mr Archibald will be John Ryszkowski. As sales director for distribution, Mr Ryszkowski will be responsible for the strategic development of Vent-Axia’s business through its distribution partners.

Mr Ryszkowski joins Vent-Axia from Wavin Plastics where he was the national account manager, and has over 10 years’ business development experience in the building materials sector.

Brendan Murphy, group sales director, said: “We would like to wish Steve all the best for the future as he takes up this new opportunity and relocates to Scotland. At the same time, we welcome John as the new sales director for distribution at Vent-Axia.

“John will have the opportunity to build on Steve’s successes and continue the strategic development of Vent-Axia’s distribution business. John brings with him a wealth of experience in business development and strategic selling and will be a key addition to the senior team.”
