Every year COPRA pays tribute to an outstanding individual whom the organisation feels has made an extra special contribution to the retail beauty industry. The award is named in memory of Gordon Whitehead a much admired retailer who despite his premature death, had established an enviable reputation for outstanding customer service at his family-owned department store in Bolton.
Previous winners of the award include Simon Kippin (Glamour Magazine), John Stevenson (Chanel) and Robin Vincent (Clarins).
This year Ken Lamacraft won the prestigious award, of his years heading up KLM Lamacraft says, “It is a huge privilege to be able to work with outstanding brands in the world of skincare and fragrance, to have this as my daily working life and then to receive an industry award for what I thoroughly enjoy doing it cannot get any better. A huge number of people have contributed to help me over the years and to them I owe a huge debt of thanks as well”
Lamacraft has been working with Tous fragrance for over a decade and we are very proud of his great achievement!
