Glen Dimplex Home Appliances (GDHA) CEO Denver Hewlett is celebrating 20 years with the business.

Denver began his career with Belling, joining the company’s old Mexborough site in 1996 as marketing director and proved influential in taking Belling from a name synonymous with electric cooking, to a brand with broad appeal and a comprehensive range of products, the company says.

denver-and-cakeDuring his 20 years with the business Denver has overseen the launch of some of the company’s most successful and innovative products, including the Belling Omega and the world’s first induction oven. In 2001, Denver worked closely with parent company Glen Dimplex on the acquisition of appliance brands Stoves and New World, closely followed by the acquisition of Lec refrigeration in 2005. The result was the formation of Glen Dimplex Home Appliances.

Denver has become known as a champion of UK manufacturing, leading a reshoring movement for GDHA in 2009, which saw the company become the last remaining UK manufacturer of cooking appliances across all categories. Denver has also driven GDHA’s export business and the company now exports worldwide and was awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in 2012.

Denver commented: “The last 20 years have seen huge change and upheaval in the industry, but I feel very fortunate to be part of such a dynamic marketplace. In my role at GDHA I am the custodian of brands with rich histories and a very loyal following. We have some exciting launches coming up, so I look forward to what is around the corner.”
