The Fragrance Shop appoints Peter Cowgill as chairman
The Fragrance Shop has appointed former JD Sports chairman Peter Cowgill as its first non-executive chairman.
In his new position, Cowgill will work closely with The Fragrance Shop chief executive Sanjay Vadera and the company’s leadership team as they work on its ambitious growth plans.
Cowgill said: “Against the post pandemic backdrop and current economic headwinds, The Fragrance Shop continues to perform because of its focus on innovation and ensuring it puts the customer and its members at the heart of everything it does.
“I look forward to working with them closely on its expansion plans – particularly in its digital business, as it furthers its international footprint and in support of category expansion through acquisition and organic growth.”
The move follows the announcement of increased annual sales and profits for the Manchester based retailer and a move to a new state-of-the-art headquarters and distribution centre at Trafford Park.
Vadera added: “With our proven strategy and clear momentum, we know The Fragrance Shop can develop into a world-leading multichannel retailer. “We’re looking forward to the counsel and experience Peter will bring as we expand and grow.”
