Victory Leisure Homes has undergone a major management restructure to secure future growth.

Under the move, Peter Nevitt, who has led the company since it was launched in April 2009, has been promoted to Chief Executive, and former Director of Operations, Gary Corlyon, becomes Managing Director.

Other senior positions are expected to be announced shortly as part of the far-reaching reshuffle.

James Doyle, director and board member of J.R. Rix & Sons Ltd – the company that owns Victory Leisure Homes – said Peter had presided over 10 years of solid, organic growth for the business.

He added that the new management structure would enable the business to capitalise on that and take it to the next level.

Mr Doyle said: “Peter launched Victory Leisure Homes and has driven it from being a small start-up business employing less than 30 people to a major player employing more than 200.

“The success of the company over the past decade is largely a product of his hard work and dedication, and that of the team he picked and led.

“There are still opportunities in the market place to grow organically but going forward this will take place along a considered acquisitions strategy that will help us strengthen and extend our portfolio.

“Restructuring the senior team is about making sure we have the right people in the right places to realise that growth as the business matures.”

The restructure comes as Victory Leisure Homes celebrates its 10-year anniversary.

The business started life in the former-Cosalt Holiday Homes site in Stoneferry, Hull, before moving to its current base in Gilberdyke, East Yorkshire, in 2012.

As part of the celebrations, Victory will launch its new anniversary model, the Coaster, in June.

Peter Nevitt welcomed Gary to the job, saying there was a lot of potential to take the business forward.

As Chief Executive, he will advise on strategy and sales, be a figurehead for the business, and remain responsible for all export markets.

Peter said: “We are entering an exciting new chapter for Victory Leisure Homes; the business has gone from strength to strength over the past 10 years and with this restructure and the continued support from our parent company, we can look forward to the next 10 years with confidence.”
