UNITED CAPS Appoints Vincent Chauvier to Newly Created CFO Role
As the company expands globally in line with its Close to You strategy, more complex financial management requirements and supply chain challenges are better addressed at the CFO level

Wiltz, Luxembourg, 1 June 2022 – UNITED CAPS, an international manufacturer of caps and closures, announces the appointment of Vincent Chauvier as Chief Financial Officer, a promotion from his previous role as Finance Director.

Chauvier has an extensive track record in the financial field across a variety of companies and industries. He started his career with accounting firm KPMG working his way up to Audit Engagement Manager. Subsequently, Chauvier had financial management roles with a variety of companies, including his most recent role as Vice President of Finance & Administration for Ion Beam Applications S.A. where he was the Regional CFO and also oversaw legal, sales and marketing operations. He joined UNITED CAPS in November 2020 as Finance Director. In his new role, Chauvier will sit on the Executive Committee as a permanent member and report to CEO Benoit Henckes.

“We are delighted to have someone of Vincent’s caliber on board,” Henckes said. “Since he joined us in 2020, he has proven to be a good leader and an exceptional financial manager with a terrific background across many different financially oriented disciplines. Vincent will play an important role in the CFO position as UNITED CAPS transforms into a global organization. He will augment our capabilities to manage the additional complexities and opportunities that growth brings as well as help to navigate the ongoing impact of COVID on supply chains.”

Henckes adds that the CFO role is also necessary since UNITED CAPS is now a bigger company than ever with capacity to grow even further, fueled by customer demand thanks to significant investment in R&D capability and production capacity – a great example of the company’s R&D expertise being the fact that over 50% of the caps it produces are bespoke.

“I’m looking forward to taking on this new role,” Chauvier added. “My tenure at UNITED CAPS has been a pleasure so far. It’s an exciting and innovative company, a leader in its segment, and with a talented team that feels like family. I am excited to be able to contribute to its continued growth as Chief Financial Officer.”
