October 11 marked 15 years since the launch of Haus Marketing and Distribution, with the Haus team coming together for a celebration last Friday. The team recently scooped three trophies at The Excellence in Housewares Awards – a reflection of Haus’ strong brand portfolio. It currently distributes six brands including award winners Wüsthof and Véritable.
Paul Shelley, managing director at Haus reflected on the last 15 years: “I have witnessed an overall commitment, evolution and change within this industry, something that has been phenomenal over the years, even more so in the last five. I have seen solid support from brands, retailers and our very own team. It has been a pleasure to watch the positives and work with everyone through the negatives.”
Paul added: “That said, the personal education and development for me has been one hell of a ride. Put it this way, I started Haus at 30 with hair! On a serious note, I’ve met and continue to meet some great people. Over the years I have made some lifelong friends dotted here and there; for that I will be forever grateful.”
