Milan Cvetkovic, Managing Director of Vescom UK Limited has been appointed Chairman of the BCFA (British Contract Furnishing Association). He takes over from Jonathan Young, Global Sales Director of OW Hospitality who has finished his term in office.
Since graduating Milan has worked in a number of senior management and Board level roles, in sales and operations exclusively within interiors industries in the UK and internationally, which included Sales Director at Muraspec and Armourcoat and since 2001, as MD of Vescom. During the past few years Vescom has become a recognized “one stop shop” for contract quality wall coverings, seating and drapery fabrics for the hospitality, corporate, healthcare and education sectors.
“ I am delighted to have the opportunity to become Chairman of the BCFA. The Association has made tremendous progress over the past few years and my compliments to the dedication of previous Chairmen who have made this possible. My role will include building on this progress and steering new initiatives that will enhance the support to members and enhance our reputation with industry stakeholders.”
The profile of the BCFA has been growing steadily, firstly with a rebranding exercise and then through various marketing activities to reach out and explain the key role the Association plays within the industry. The role includes consultation with central government, supporting international trade and export and holding the Presidency of the European Office Furniture Federation.
“Our influence is now being felt in many places where we can make a positive contribution to improve business prospects and where necessary push for change through strategic initiatives, and this is an area that I am keen to support”.
