Whirlpool UK Appliances Limited, the home of Hotpoint, Indesit, Whirlpool and KitchenAid brands, has paid tribute to its former employee Jayson Weston, following his sudden and unexpected death. Jayson died aged 51, leaving behind his wife and two young children.
Jayson enjoyed a successful career at Whirlpool UK, working for the company for almost 30 years. In his most recent role as Brand Experience, Customer and Digital Activation & In-Store Director, Jayson was responsible for managing all commercial and marketing customer activations. During his time at Whirlpool UK, Jayson delivered a series of firsts for the organisation, including negotiating and activating sponsorship of Arsenal, PSG and AC Milan football clubs, as well as activating the Hotpoint & Jamie Oliver brand campaign, ‘Fresh Thinking for Forgotten Food.’
Ian Moverley, Public Affairs Director, Whirlpool UK Appliances Limited says: “Having worked side by side with Jace for more than 20 years, what always struck everyone was not only his dedication and attention to detail, but also a passion to think differently, embracing technology and alternative ideas to improve the business and the customer experience.
“Personally, I will forever be grateful for his warmth, friendship and kindness where he would always go out of his way to help you. Everyone at Whirlpool was devastated to hear of his passing and will miss him greatly. I miss a true friend and feel blessed to have been able to spend so much time with him over the years. Our hearts go out to his family for the loss of a truly inspirational and unique man.”
