Raymond Houtenbos named as Evolved Novelties VP of Sales, Europe

Evolved Novelties is proud to announce Raymond Houtenbos as their new Vice President of Sales, Europe. “Ray is not only the perfect fit for our brands, but he is the new face of our company in Europe,” says Evolved and Zero Tolerance president Greg A. “His understanding of the European market is invaluable to us, and his personal enthusiasm for our brands means we can expect to grow and develop with a strong foundation of trust and loyalty.”

“I’m confident that with my experience, knowledge and network, I can make a significant contribution to the future success of Evolved Novelties, Adam & Eve, and Zero Tolerance in the European market,” says Houtenbos, who is based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and previously worked with Pipedreams for more than six years in Europe. “I am very much looking forward to a long-lasting relationship with the Zero Tolerance and Evolved teams, and our world-wide customers.”

Prior to Pipedreams, Houtenbos worked as Sales Director at Scala, and before that at DLC Europe BV, building on his earlier background in air and sea freight expedition. Houtenbos is heading up Evolved’s European team now, shepherding their many brands to new and established European markets. He will also be overseeing the launch of the first Evolved Novelties warehouse facility in Amsterdam that will help considerably to streamline operations and distribution there.

“I’m honored to represent Evolved across the ocean, and I can see that my strategies and philosophy are in line with what this top brand wants to accomplish,” Houtenbos says. “The collaborative relationship we’ve established so far is certain to result in something beautiful!”
