Sika has appointed Dragan Maksimovic as its General Manager. The role will see him build on the continued growth of the company across its multiple UK markets. He is taking over from Ivo Schaedler, who has taken on the extended responsibility of Area Manager Europe South, responsible for the UK, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Greece and Mauritius within Sika.
Dragan joined Sika in 2002 and was responsible for developing the company’s operation in Serbia.
Through the new appointment he will build upon the already well-established Sika brand in the UK. In 2016 the company is aiming to achieve 6% growth in net sales whilst maintaining profitability levels. Major focuses that will help the company achieve this centre on further development of its network of specifiers, strengthening relationships with key specialist distributors and adding to the Sika contractor networks. The company will also continue to focus efforts on securing major projects via its Major Project Management Team, who have shown great success in 2015, as well as developing inter-company business.
“I strongly believe that teamwork stands behind every result and that people do make the difference,” commented Dragan. “Relationships inside the company and towards the customers are the main drivers for sustainable good results. Sika UK is a strong company and I am looking forward to the challenge of growing the brand in the UK.”
