Founder and Director, V4 Wood Flooring


Chris Vincent - V4 Wood Flooring

Chris Vincent, founder and director of V4 Wood Flooring. Former racing driver turned entrepreneur, Chris Vincent, has overcome many challenges in his life to emerge as managing director of a successful £15m + flooring company with projections for £20m in 2023.

Chris, who is dyslexic, left secondary school with no qualifications and an ambition to become a F1 racing driver. Although he successfully competed in F Vauxhall and F Renault competitions, including racing for ex Formula One driver Martin Donnelly’s race team, he took the difficult decision to walk away from the profession after deciding that he couldn’t make a career out of the sport.

Instead, aged just 23, he turned his attention to enterprise, following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather, who ran their own flooring business, to set up V4 Wood Flooring, with his older brother, Nathan Vincent. The company is based in Woking, Surrey.
