Vendasta is delighted to announce Paul Hollands has been elected as the new chair of its Board of Directors.

Hollands is a recognized leader within the Canadian business community. He retired earlier this year as President and CEO of A&W Food Services of Canada after 37 years with the company, and currently serves as its Chairperson. Hollands credits Vendasta’s international potential and growing profile as leading factors in his decision to lead the Vendasta board.

“It is built on fantastic foundational technical capabilities, coupled with a highly innovative culture and fantastic people. It is the best of what Canada brings to technological innovation,” said Hollands. “Vendasta is poised to become one of Canada’s premier technology companies with a worldwide footprint, and I am really excited to help the management team take the company to the next level.”

Hollands will help guide Vendasta in its growth trajectory, including its efforts to expand to new global markets.

“Paul spent decades masterfully pushing A&W forward, and we’re already seeing the value in his ideas and strategies,” said Vendasta CEO Brendan King. “The experience and skill that Paul and the rest of the board brings to our team are remarkable assets to have as we continue to grow internationally.”
