Joules founder Tom Joule awarded OBE for services to business
British lifestyle brand Joules has announced that Tom Joule, Founder and Non-Executive Director of the group, has been awarded an OBE for services to business within the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Honours List.
Tom Joule founded Joules in 1989 in the fields of Great Britain when he began selling clothing on a stand at a country show in Leicestershire. The business has since grown to a multi-channel lifestyle brand delivering annual sales of almost £200m, with more than 140 stores across the UK and a total active customer base of more than 1.9m.
Joules employs over 1,700 people and is the biggest employer in its hometown of Market Harborough, Leicestershire, where the business has operated since day one.
Having delivered significant growth over the past 30 years, Joules is still known and loved for its distinctive use of humour, colour and unique prints, each of which is hand-drawn by the brand’s talented in-house print design team at its headquarters.
