Dan Huish is excited to announce his ongoing commitment to community service and supporting charitable organizations financially. Throughout his long and illustrious career, Dan Huish has had the privilege of working with a number of philanthropic group to improve the lives of those in need both locally and around the world. Now, Dan Huish encourages others to do the same.

“I feel very privileged to have had the means with which to help those in need,” commented Dan Huish, who has donated to dozens of groups, charities, and non-profits throughout his life. “I think that helping others is one of the most important things that we can do, and I highly suggest it as a way of becoming more involved in a community and putting philosophies of sustainability and charity into practice.”

In recent years, Dan Huish and the philanthropic arm of his business ventures, the Huish Foundation, have formed relationships with a number of organizations, donating to both specific projects and events and supporting groups with annual contributions. Dan Huish regularly donates to Wounded Warriors, Children’s Hospital Seattle, the University of Utah Hospital, Camp Korey Seattle, the Rwanda Girls Initiative, Bristol Bay, and Best Friends Animal Sanctuary.

Former CEO Dan Huish Celebrates Successful Career

Businessman Dan Huish celebrates twenty-eight years of success in business.

Dan Huish's insight:

Dan Huish is proud to celebrate twenty-eight years of success in business. From humble beginnings, Dan Huish has grown a number of businesses into highly successful enterprises, earning him significant recognition in multiple industries.

“I could never have dreamed of the amount of success that I’ve been able to achieve over the course of my career,” remarked Dan Huish as he reflected on his ongoing journey through the business world. “When I started Huish Detergents in 1985, I had no idea that I would one day be bringing in over a billion dollars in revenue per year, let alone that I would have the opportunity to found and grow additional businesses.”

Dan Huish’s success did indeed begin with Huish Detergents, Inc. Under CEO Dan Huish’s exacting eye, Huish Detergents eventually expanded to encompass a central office in Salt Lake City, large-scale manufacturing plants in four states, twelve patents, and over 2,300 jobs. Dan Huish sold the company in 2007 to a private capital company, and was pleased to see it enter a merger with Unilever in 2008 to become the United States’ second largest detergent manufacturer, after Procter & Gamble.

“The lessons that I learned as CEO of Huish Detergents helped me to understand what worked and what didn’t, and greatly influenced the directions I took with Huish Outdoors,” commented Dan Huish. Huish Outdoors is Dan Huish’s sporting goods conglomerate, which has so far acquired four additional companies in the SCUBA diving gear industry.

Most recently, Dan Huish has engaged in a ranching business. As the owner of Wapika Ranch in Pinedale, WY, Dan Huish oversees the raising of one thousand heads of high-quality beef each year. “It’s definitely a departure from my previous ventures, but I enjoy the fact that I get to spend a considerable amount of time enjoying the Wyoming landscape and working in a totally different industry than where I’ve been in the past,” said Dan Huish of his ranching business.

While Dan Huish has taken a step back to enjoy life with his family and friends in recent years, he by no means plans to exist the business world. Dan Huish looks forward to seeing where his current ventures go in coming years, and has not ruled out the possibility of starting another business if the opportunity presents itself.
