“We are confident that Bob Size will lead Drive into a phase of further growth and customer satisfaction.”

Size will now assume day-to-day leadership of the company and also join the board himself.

He joins Drive after serving in various executive leadership roles at Dentsply Sirona over the past 15 years, the world’s largest supplier of dental materials and equipment.

With Dentsply Sirona, Size had enterprise-wide executive and operating responsibilities, as well as responsibilities over both manufacturing operations and sales organisations located in the United States and Europe.

Before joining Dentsply, Size served as Chief Executive Officer and President of Superior MicroPowders following a 16-year career with the Cookson Group PLC, where he held various cross-functional and international leadership positions.

Size commented on his appointment, saying: “I am incredibly excited to assume this role and for the future of the company,” said Size. “I look forward to working with the team at Drive, building upon the company’s almost 20-year history of delivering great products and experiences for customers.”

In September Drive DeVilbiss secured £28m in new capital.
