Omar Group Appoint New MD for UK Sundecks

Omar Group is delighted to announce the appointment of John Gill as UK Sundecks’ new Managing Director. The appointment marks the next phase in what is set to be exciting times for the brand, with new contracts and ambitious growth plans on the horizon.

Aquired by Omar Group in October 2018 to further strengthen the groups’ offering as a solutions provider to the luxury lodge and park home marketplace, UK Sundecks is a leading supplier of PVCu decking. No luxury lodge looks complete without a high quality deck and UK Sundecks supply and fit exactly that; moreover, the galvanised steel sub-frame and anti-slip PVCu decks supplied are much more durable than other types of decking, therefore particularly suitable in the UK’s variable weather.

Joining the group from Assa Abloy Hospitality where he was Head of UK Sales & Marketing, John comes from a strong and diverse commercial background. With a number of senior management roles under his belt, including positions at H & R Johnson, Pilkington’s Tiles, Imperial Bathroom Company, Heritage Bathrooms and Impey Showers, John brings with him an impressive record of achievement. With proven capability of developing and managing high performing teams across the retail, contract and specification markets, John has also delivered impressive sales growth and increased market share.

John will report directly to Omar Chief Executive, Graeme Craig and will succeed Jake Randle who will eventually fully transition out of UK Sundecks, as part of the acquisition plan agreed when acquiring the company in 2018.

Jake, who is well-know and respected within the industry, has extensive commercial and technical knowledge of the decking market. He will work closely with John over the coming months to share this knowledge and help prepare John to deliver UK Sundecks’ growth plans.

Graeme Craig, Omar Chief Executive commented: “Over the past eight years UK Sundecks has earnt a reputation as one of the UK’s best and most reliable suppliers of PVCu decking and the business has gone from strength to strength under the leadership of father and son management team Dave and Jake Randle. Investment in the business from Omar Group and Rutland Partners in October last year has allowed UK Sundecks to step-up to the next level and John’s appointment sees the start of an exciting new phase for the company.”

John Gill, Managing Director for UK Sundecks commented: “I’m delighted to have been given the opportunity to join such a successful business and look forward to working closely alongside Graeme and the team to deliver UK Sundecks’ growth aspirations. I look forward to the challenge of taking the business to the next level and working to improve our products and services. It’s exciting times and I’m extremely proud to now be a part of it.”
