Epe, The Netherlands – The VMI Group has extended its board of directors with the appointment of Mike Norman as chief commercial officer (CCO).
In his new position, effective 1 Oct, Norman is responsible for all commercial activities of VMI globally, the Dutch tire machinery company said 8 Oct.
The appointment, said VMI, is in the face of the “vast growth” of the group in recent years which has seen the company increase its market share and widen its product portfolio.

VMI’s global sales force is currently spread across nine countries and presided by CEO Harm Voortman. The newly appointed CCO will take over the responsibility from Voortman.
