End era at Truvox as MD retires

Valuable legacy for Truvox as Managing Director retires

Truvox International’s current Managing Director, David Overell, will retire at the end of 2019.

During his tenure, emphasis on constant innovation and advanced manufacturing techniques have kept Truvox at the top of its markets and resulted in increased turnover. David is a strong believer in the importance of international connections, and both home and export sales have prospered under his management.

David joined Truvox in January 1996 as Financial Controller, responsible for finance and information communications technology (ICT), having previously trained and worked as a Chartered Accountant. A year later he was promoted to Commercial Director after being a member of the top team managing the successful acquisition of Trewax Manufacturing Ltd.

In 2003 he helped manage the acquisition of the assets of Cimex International and was promoted to General Manager in 2007, as Truvox became part of the Tacony Corporation. He became Managing Director in January 2009, following the retirement of Peter Holt.

He has been a member of the Worshipful Company of Environmental Cleaners since 2008. He has also been a board member of EUnited Cleaning’s General Assembly, which represents the leading producers of floor cleaning machines and high-pressure cleaners for commercial and industrial use. He also represented Truvox on the Janitorial Products Export Group (JPEG) and has been a member of the Interclean Exhibition Committee since January 2017.

Gordon McVean, International Sales and Marketing Director at Truvox International since 2008, will head up Truvox in 2020.

Gordon will continue to have responsibility for international business and work with the current senior management team to manage David’s previous duties.

Gordon said: “David has spent 24 years guiding Truvox’s growth, with 11 of those as Managing Director, making it the internationally recognised operation it is today. I am extremely proud to be able to take the helm at Truvox to ensure its innovation, customer service and success continues.”
