He is planning to rely on open communication, cooperation, and trust among the employees to attain the Company’s major goal: securing Trimo’s position as one of the most successful Slovenian global brands.

After Maciej Radomski stepped down from his position as Trimo’s CEO due to personal reasons, the former Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Jeffery L. Grady, assumed a temporary role as the Company’s leader until the appointment of a new chief executive.

He previously worked for the Wienerberger company, the world’s largest producer of clay building materials, where he managed the Balkan Region and before that, served as Member of the Board for the Adriatic Region. He was also a Member of the Board and the Commercial Director of Lafarge. He began his career at the Velux company. Božo Černila possesses a great range of skills and expertise in sales, marketing, brand building, business organization, corporate restructuring, and, above all, management.

Upon taking office, Božo Černila introduced himself to the employees and met with the broader management team and the workers’ representatives. He stressed that open communication, sharing different opinions and knowledge, and feedback are crucial for achieving business excellence. “Together, we will strive for Trimo to become one of the most successful global brands in Slovenia. In terms of financial indicators, our aim is to perform at least as well as the world’s most successful providers of architectural solutions. We will achieve it through mutual respect, focused work, each individual assuming responsibility, through introducing innovative products and solutions and by placing our customers at the center of all our activities,” says the new CEO of Trimo.

Trimo competes with high-quality, innovative, and functional solutions in the global market of building envelope solutions. Its vision is to further enhance its position in the most demanding markets and segments through advanced solutions and excellent performance. The Company also seeks to enter new markets and segments and develop new products that will not only follow trends, but also set them.
