Hess GmbH Light + Form intensifies its sales activities for the Belgian market

- Paul Denoo, new sales manager for Hess in Belgium starting from January 2015

- Innovation campaign lays the foundation for new sales structures


Villingen-Schwenningen / Antwerp (B), 09. January 2015

Hess GmbH Licht + Form, an internationally leading manufacturer of designed outdoor luminaires and site furnishings based in Villingen-Schwenningen (Germany), has Paul Denoo (48) as the new sales manager for the Belgium market. At 19. January 2015, Paul Denoo will start working for Hess in the Antwerp office. 

Denoo has more than 20 years experience in the sales of complex products. What is more, in recent years he already worked for two renowned companies in the lighting industry targeting the Belgium market and thus contributes proven expertise.  Pierre van Lamsweerde, Managing Director of Hess and CEO of the Nordeon Group, is delighted: “Paul Denoo is the ideal choice for the Belgian market, to offer our customers the best possible service and the best possible consultation.”

About a year ago, Hess started its comprehensive innovation campaign. The new Dalvik product family is the third new product family introduced within the last 12 months. At the end of March 2014, the VAREDO and AVANGARDO 2 collections were launched on the market as completely new products, well in time for the Light & Building show. With this innovation campaign, Hess also adopted new sales approaches. True to the company's motto "Hess - We design cities", its focus is on three elements of vital importance - holistic approaches, solution-driven thinking and maximum flexibility.  

“We will continue to improve our customer orientation and customer proximity and increasingly distinguish ourselves from our competitors in this regard as well,” said von Lamsweerde clearly indicating the direction of the company. Accordingly, the team for the Belgium market will soon be expanded.
