Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove Employee Testimonial Benji Dehn


The employees, opportunities to participate in innovative new products, and the Bakke family’s commitment to state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities continue to make Sub-Zero Group, Inc. a fulfilling career choice for me. I have seen tremendous growth with the organization over the years, yet the focus remains on the continuous development of our people, product, and facilities. This not only sets our company apart from other employers in the area, it also provides employees across all levels of the organization the opportunity to proudly associate with three exceptional brands.

As the procurement manager for new product development, I find our projects to be exciting and challenging. I appreciate the value and resources directed to the new product development teams and look forward to the completion of the new Design Center. It will help streamline and expedite the new product development process by centralizing resources under one roof. I also enjoy the people I work with on cross-functional teams. I feel privileged to work with smart people who care about what they do and the products we create.

"I decided to work for Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove after my initial nine month co-op experience. What really sold me on wanting to start my career at Wolf was the people; the assemblers, my peers, and all the way up the ladder it really was a culture I enjoyed. I felt like I had found a niche working at Wolf, coming from a blue collar background I really enjoy being challenged and pushed to find new, better, and safer ways to accomplish the ultimate goal of making the world’s finest luxury appliances. Working at Wolf is almost like having a second family, we look out for each other, get our work done, and enjoy our time together."

"Working on these brands is a dream realized. Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove represent beautiful, powerful category leaders that live up to their legacies. The company’s history is unique. Founded right here in Madison, family-owned and built from the ground up over more than 70 years, it’s a gem and a rarity. But my favorite piece of Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove is the people. To be surrounded by passionate people who take pride in doing great work is invigorating and contagious."

"As a Corporate Chef at Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove, I have the best of both worlds. I get to fulfill my passion for cooking while using some of the most innovative and impeccably designed cooking equipment in the world. My team in the kitchen is often the first to use many of our products, and their opinions are highly valued. We feel like we are part of a big family that allows us the freedom to create food that is deliciously designed to showcase our products."

- Justin Thorpe, Corporate Chef, Joined Sub-Zero Group in 2006

"Every few years it seems, I'm put in a position where I can learn something new and different, and I'm given the autonomy to get the job done on my own—but there is also enough structure to ensure success. Working on the PRO 48 refrigeration line from the design introduction through the production launch I learned about everything, from managing people to our internal systems... it was an invaluable opportunity for me."
