Cova Security Gates, a leading manufacturer of quality perimeter security equipment, is delighted to announce the appointments of its latest Board Directors.
Being recognised for its continued innovation and commitment to customer service these appointments come at a significant time for Cova, as it celebrates 30 years in business.
The new appointments to the Board of Directors are from within the business; Adrian Lewis has been in the role of Commercial Director for the past 18 months – this announcement formalises his legal status as Director. Jon Trott is appointed as Operations Director also with full legal status. They will join existing Board Directors Susan Wear, Finance & HR, Mike Volpin, Non-Executive Director and Gerry Cowan, Managing Director.
Managing Director – Gerry Cowan commented; “’The business has a strong management team in place delivering a well-resourced strategic plan and these high-level appointments demonstrate crucial leadership commitments in taking the business forward”.
Adrian has been with Cova since 2012 and held the role of Commercial Director since 2016 leading the Service, Sales and Field engineer growth and strategy as well as implementing business development globally. His position on the board will add greater strength to the commercial direction and strategy of the business.
Jon joined the business in 2013 taking responsibility for the Company’s processes and compliance. His understanding of the industry is well respected as for the past 2 years he has sat on the council of the PSSA (Perimeter Security Suppliers Association). Last autumn Jon was promoted to Operations Manager, overseeing day to day functionality of the design, production and field service engineering teams.
Gerry Cowan, Managing Director commented; “For Jon this is a fantastic achievement given such a short time since taking ownership of the day to day Operation, and the business is delighted that Adrian’s commitment to his existing role as Commercial Director has been rewarded by joining Sue, Mike and myself on the Board”.
