PARK CITY, UT— Gozney, the outdoor pizza oven brand, is expanding its business from the UK and opening an office in the US right here in Park City. The branch will be under the direction of Park City resident Denny Bruce as CEO. Bruce was recently the president of Dickies Global Brand and formally the Executive Vice President of Sales, Product, and Marketing at Traeger Pellet Grills in Sugar House. Gozney says Park City is a hub of creativity for growing outdoor and tech brands such as Skull Candy, Kodiak Cakes, and Black Diamond.
“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 in a press release. “Although I am new in the CEO role, I have been involved with the business for over three 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!”
Gozney’s award-winning live-fire pizza ovens were founded by Tom Gozney, who will transition from CEO to Executive Chairman, allowing the duo to work closely on continued growth for the Gozney initiatives, including new products. Gozney live-fire pizza ovens boast restaurant-grade results in functional, outdoor backyard cooking. Gozney has experienced global business growth in the past few years and hopes to continue the momentum with Bruce at the helm.
“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 in a press release. “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.”
