After nine years at the helm of coffee machine specialist Evoca UK, managing director David Ward is retiring. He will be replaced by Hervé Donneaud who will be in the UK from May 1 to start the handover process.

Hervé has a background in finance and has been with Evoca for 15 years initially managing the company’s French Leasing business.

Later he took over as country manager for France and most recently has spent three years looking after the North and South America businesses based in Miami.

He brings a wealth of knowledge about the out of home drinks and snacks business from many countries as well as an intimate knowledge of Evoca’s products.

David said: “I have every confidence Hervé will continue the excellent work carried out the UK team delivering new innovative products and ever improving service levels to all of our customers.”
