Priva appoints new General Manager to drive growth in the UK & Ireland

Building automation technology leader Priva has appointed Jonathan Feaver to the role of General Manager for its Priva UK & Ireland business.

Jonathan, who has spent the last 12 years in the building controls sector, brings vast industry experience to the role. Prior to joining Priva, he spent seven years in senior leadership and business development roles at Honeywell, where he represented Honeywell’s partner channel BMS brands including Trend Controls, CentraLine and Ex-Or.

Jonathan’s appointment underpins Priva’s growth aspirations for the UK and Ireland markets. His focus is to drive growth across the Priva product portfolio – particularly in the large commercial buildings sector. He also brings particular expertise and experience that will accelerate the growth of Priva’s industry-leading portfolio of cloud-based solutions Priva Digital Services (PDS).

Commenting on his new role, Jonathan says:

“I am absolutely delighted to join the Priva family. Priva is a company I have long admired for its technology and its ingrained commitment to sustainability. The built environment needs solutions to major climate challenges and I can see an increased market demand for technologies that deliver on energy goals. I am extremely pleased to have this opportunity to work with the highly experienced UK team to open up new opportunities and conversations and bring the Priva brand to new audiences.”

Welcoming Jonathan Feaver to Priva, Director Sales EMEA, Pierre-Paul Lagache says this strategic appointment confirms the company’s ambitious plans for the UK and Ireland region:

“We are thrilled to welcome Jonathan Feaver to the Priva business. He is an industry heavy-weight and brings tremendous energy, enthusiasm and a fresh approach to our team. His experience in senior leadership and business development roles will help us to reach new markets and opens up the potential for new conversations with our Partners and End-User community. We are all very excited to see what the future holds with Jonathan at the helm in the UK – we feel sure his leadership skills and networks will be the catalyst for a very bright new chapter in our story.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Anders Norén, who has been serving as Priva UK’s interim General Manager UK & Ireland since September 2023, whilst continuing to manage Priva’s business in the Nordics and the Middle East. Anders has done an outstanding job of leading our UK team and ensuring the continuity and stability of our UK business during this transition period. Anders will now turn his full attention to Priva’s international business as Manager Export.”

Outside of work, Jonathan is a keen sportsman and enjoys following live sport and walking his working Cocker Spaniel. 2024 is a year of new chapters for him – Jonathan is not only looking forward to the start of his new role at Priva, but he is also due to marry his fiancé Beth in September this year.

Jonathan joined Priva on the 29th of April 2024 and his first major event is the BCIA’s Annual Awards and Members’ Conference on May 2nd where he will present the Energy Management Award – sponsored by Priva UK & Ireland.
