A new corporate entity, Vivona Brands has been launched as the parent company for its existing portfolio of wellbeing, beauty and lifestyle brands.
Headquartered in London, with offices in North America and Asia, Vivona Brands is jointly controlled by its management team and Inflexion PE, a leading UK mid-market private equity fund.
Tim Wright, CEO at Vivona Brands comments “Vivona’s award-winning brands are insightful, innovative, and developed with a real passion for creating happiness and enjoyment. Derived from the Latin ‘vivo’ meaning alive, that’s how we aim to make our customers feel.”
Tim Wright continues “Our appetite to explore new markets and engage with consumers and trends globally is at the heart of our vitality. The business is enjoying strong growth in North America and Europe through its focus on developing close partnerships with leading retailers such as CVS, Walgreens, Boots and Target.
"Our unique combination of fast-innovation, robust infrastructure and strong international relationships remains the core of our business DNA. Our investment in people and infrastructure has created great brands and business growth, most recently recognised by consecutive awards in the Sunday Times & HSBC International Fast Track 200 which ranks the fastest growing international businesses.”
