AMDEA’s Paul Hide recognised for his contribution to the industry

Paul Hide, CEO of the Association of Manufacturers of Domestic Appliances has been recognised for his Contribution to the Industry with an award.

The award was presented by Beko MD and AMDEA chair, Teresa Arbuckle and Retra CEO Howard Saycell. Mr Hide has previously worked as Director of Marketing and Membership at TechUK, and before that, for consumer electrics brands at the IER Awards 2023.

On receiving the award, Mr Hide said: “I am so grateful to have been given this honour. It means a great deal to me. Appliances are vital to everyone in helping them go about their daily lives and I take huge pride in representing the industry through the auspices of AMDEA. We have achieved a lot in the last few years at ADMEA but we are not going to be resting on our laurels, we have plenty more excellent work in the pipeline.”

Mr Hide has overseen a growth in membership and improved engagement with both Westminster & Whitehall, channel partners, the media, academic communities and conferences. He has also enhanced research work and charity outreach. He also worked on the award winning and ground breaking Know Watt’s What campaign, which was aimed at educating and empowering consumers to make informed decisions about energy efficient appliances.

Teresa Arbuckle, Chair AMDEA, congratulated her colleague on his achievement. She said: “I am most thankful to Paul for his strong leadership in taking over as CEO of AMDEA, the UK trade association for manufacturers of domestic appliances, in 2019. Paul has not only strengthened the leadership team at AMDEA but also worked on consumer campaigns which promote the benefits of home appliances, winning a Trade PR award for Know Watt’s What last year in addition to supporting Register My Appliance into its 8th year.  He has strengthened relations with APPLiA while improving government and retailer collaboration, as evidenced with last month’s House of Parliament event on Sustainability.”
