Premium outdoor oven brand Gozney recently announced the appointment of former Dickies Global Brand President, Denny Bruce, as Chief Executive Officer. Bruce will lead the business alongside Founder and former CEO, Tom Gozney.
“Here at Gozney we’ve been on an incredible journey the last few years and I’m so proud of the brand we’ve built. The business holds enormous potential on a global scale, and we feel Denny is the perfect partner to lead the team alongside me on this journey,” said Gozney. “As the brand enters a new phase of growth and expansion, Denny will unite our international teams to drive a consistent global experience that brings to life our mission to change the way the world cooks outdoors.”
The appointment enables Tom Gozney, Founder of the brand and former CEO, to transition to the role of Executive Chairman where he will work closely with Bruce to advance Gozney’s strategic initiatives. Within his new role, Gozney will focus on driving forward the company’s exciting new product pipeline and brand-building initiatives.
Gozney continues to experience strong business growth and rapid expansion into new markets and revenue channels, and as CEO, Bruce will provide direction for the brand and be responsible for all aspects of the company’s global operations and performance by driving profitable growth through the activation of Gozney’s strategic plan.
Prior to joining Gozney, industry veteran Bruce was Global Brand President of leading workwear brand Dickie, and he also served as Executive Vice President of Sales, Product and Marketing at Traeger Pellet Grills where he and the team quadrupled the company’s revenue and earnings during a four-year period. Bruce also previously held impactful roles at Skullcandy, Vans® and Burton Snowboards.
“I feel honored to join Gozney at such an exciting time. Gozney is a dynamic, innovative brand that has carved out a truly unique position in the market,” said Bruce. “Although I am new in the CEO role, I have been involved with the business for over 3 years as a member of their Board of Directors. I can’t wait to combine a proven playbook for scaling Global brands with Tom’s obsession to build remarkable products. Not to mention, we are going to have loads of fun and create some real noise…because who doesn’t love pizza!”
