He succeeds David Wilson, who will now be leading Vanden’s navigation of the industry’s ever tightening and evolving regulation and legislation protocols in a new role as Director of Compliance.
Kevin’s appointment brings the UK and European functions under one leadership umbrella for the first time to align and further strengthen Vanden’s efforts in both markets.
2022 was a bumper year for recruitment, the company said. Twenty new appointments were made to Vanden’s UK & European teams across various departments, including sales, business development, logistics, finance and HR.
Under Thompson’s leadership, the company plans to maintain this same level of recruitment throughout 2023 in order to reinforce further and build on existing team capabilities and help meet client demand.

“The world is changing, as it always does. Vanden has the momentum and strength to adapt to these changes and to make the best of them, not only for the company but for the world around us too. We’ve seen some great new colleagues join the existing dedicated and expert team over the past year. We’ll keep attracting the best of the best globally under Kevin’s leadership.”
Kevin Thompson joined Vanden last year as a senior advisor. His key aims for the future are to enhance Vanden’s processing and trading capacity within the UK and Europe.
“If you are an individual or organisation that would like to play a part in this exciting period it would be great to hear from you,” he added.
