EVOCA stalwart retires

After nine years presiding over EVOCA UK Dave Ward has retired.

His replacement is Hervé Donneaud, who’s been in the UK since the beginning of May undergoing a comprehensive handover process.

Hervé Donneaud

Hervé has a finance background and has been with EVOCA for 15 years, initially managing the company’s French leasing business.

He subsequently took over as country manager for France and most recently spent three years looking after both EVOCA’s North and South American operations from a base in Miami.

He brings with him a wealth of knowledge about the out-of-home drinks and snacks business garnered from many countries – as well as an intimate knowledge of EVOCA products.

Dave told Vending International: “I have every confidence that Hervé will continue the excellent work carried out by the UK team in delivering new and innovative products, together with ever improving service levels to all our customers.”
