Denby Names New North American Management Team

The Denby Pottery Company Ltd. has finalized the restructure of its North American operations, with Dana Kelhart leading the North American business overall.

Kelhart has been appointed marketing director and general manager, Denby North America. Kelhart was previously marketing manager, a position she held for more than 10 years, in which she worked closely with all aspects of the business, according to Denby.

The restructuring was the result of newly appointed global CEO, Sebastian Lazell, joining Denby earlier this year after the departure of previous U.S. president Lynne Okulski.

Todd Jarvis has been appointed sales director, Denby North America, leading accounts across Canada and the U.S. Jarvis joined Denby in 2012; he had brought to Denby experience in housewares, according to the company. Nicole Ramos is Denby North America’s new sales manager. Ramos will support Jarvis with national and independents accounts as well as lead all merchandising efforts in the field, according to Denby. She has been with Denby for over eight years.

Lazell said, “I have every confidence in this team to bring great design and important innovation in tableware to consumers in North America as they reignite growth of the strong made in England, Denby brand to help our customers succeed.”
