Anderson & Vreeland

Anderson & Vreeland and its affiliated companies have reorganized their management along functional lines of responsibility to position the company for further growth and expansion.

The reorganization affects all of the domestic businesses of Anderson & Vreeland Distribution, Nova Polymers and The Provident Group.

Darin Lyon has been appointed as executive vice-president of Anderson & Vreeland. In this newly created position he is responsible for sales, marketing, customer service, national accounts, technical support, sales and manufacturing of AVantage liquid photopolymers, and research/development functions of the businesses. Lyon has served as vice-president and general manager for the company since 2008.

Drew Elisius has been appointed to the new position of executive vice-president responsible for operating functions of the businesses, including Nova Polymers, The Provident Group, A&V Engineering, purchasing, product and raw material procurement, and warehouse and distribution. In addition, AV Canada and AV Mexico will report to Elisius, who formerly served as vice-president of operations.

Thomas O. Gavin will transition from his position as president/chief executive officer (CEO) of Anderson & Vreeland and provide direct support to executive management in their expanded roles. He will continue to serve as an active member on the company’s board of directors with continued responsibility for all accounting and financial functions of Anderson & Vreeland and its affiliated businesses, including AV Canada and AV Mexico.

Lyon and Elisius will both report to Howard B. Vreeland, chairman and CEO.

‘This reorganization is a natural transition, expanding the roles of executive management to position A&V for continued growth and expansion. It also recognizes key individuals that have contributed to the company’s growth in recent years,’ said Howard Vreeland.
