Valmetal Group is pleased to announce the appointment of David Vallières as President for a renewable term of three years. He will be supported by Dominic Vallières as Vice President of Finance, IT, HR and Eric Vallières as Vice President of Operations and R&D.

2021 is a landmark year for the Valmetal Group, which last February unified its different brands. The Board of Directors also took the opportunity to initiate a new strategic planning process which led it to reflect on various aspects of the company, therefore pushing it to position itself more as a Group.

According to Yvon Vallières, Founder and Chairman of the Board of Directors, “the implementation of this new structure was necessary, and will allow the Group to grow in efficiency in order to adapt to the new realities of the agricultural market.”

David Vallières has always worked within the family business, occupying various positions over the years that have allowed him to develop an overall view of the needs and a vision of the company's challenges. Since 2013, he has served as Vice President Sales & Marketing, a position he will continue to hold throughout his term as President of the Valmetal Group. “I am extremely grateful for the trust placed in me and I am convinced that having an overview of all the Group's strategies will be of great benefit. My primary objective is to ensure that I go beyond expectations in achieving our objectives which aim, among other things, to become the industry benchmark in terms of customer experience”, enthuses David Vallières, President of the Valmetal Group.
