Viv

Viv Helwig

Owner/CEO

Viv Helwig founded Vested Metals in 2014 and now serves the company in the role of Business Development Manager overseeing all of the company’s activities. He founded the company on the idea that there are companies with niche metals requirements of all sizes that need a knowledgeable supplier that is dedicated to either providing them with direct solutions or pointing them in the right direction. The idea was that companies will actually embrace working with a smaller supplier who values their raw material metal needs.

Viv spends a large portion of his time on business development as well as nurturing supply side relationships. He keeps a pulse on the company’s day to day sales and operations and maintains strong relationships with all of its partners.

The majority of Viv’s career has been spent in sales and business development in specialty metals in a mill environment. This allowed him to understand the needs of distributors and their eventual end use customers. His primary exposure has been to the Defense and Medical markets as he spent a number of years focusing primary on the raw material requirements of the major medical orthopedic OEM’s and their subcontract suppliers. He holds a BA in Business Administration from Flagler College.
