International e-liquid manufacturer Flavour Warehouse Ltd, owner of the market leading Vampire Vape brand, has announced the appointment of Kanesh Khilosia as Chief Finance & Strategy Officer. Kanesh will work alongside founder and CEO, Philip Boyle, to lead Flavour Warehouse’s ambitious growth plans.
Kanesh boasts an impressive track record spanning over 30 years in fast growth entrepreneurial businesses where he has held a number of leadership roles, including Armstrong Craven, a global PE backed talent mapping, pipelining and insights business, where as CEO, he had responsibility for the development and execution of the business’ strategy as well as overseeing the company’s financial performance and operational delivery. Prior to this, he was CEO at DBG, a leading healthcare services provider delivering end-to-end services to the dental, medical, chiropody and veterinary market through a membership model. He led the business through an aggressive growth phase and eventual exit, delivering an enviable return to existing shareholders. He also serves as a mentor and advisor to a number of businesses embarking on growth through external investment and acquisition.
His appointment comes as Flavour Warehouse embarks on an aggressive growth strategy to cement its market leading international position. Flavour Warehouse plans to significantly grow the business via an organic and acquisitive growth strategy, and will continue to seek appropriate acquisition opportunities where, like with its recent acquisition of Total Vapour, mutual benefits exist.
On his appointment, Kanesh comments;
“ I am really impressed by the way in which Phil and the team have developed the business and brand and am thrilled to be part of the next phase. There are phenomenal opportunities for us to expand and build on what is a solid foundation and business with a remarkable reputation and a dedicated, talented team.”
CEO Phil Boyle adds:
“I am delighted that Kanesh has joined us. He brings some incredibly strong knowledge and experience that will be vital for us as we continue our ambitious plans for growth in a rapidly changing and expanding marketplace.”
