A recognition of luxury: Dugdale CEO Simon Glendenning makes it onto Walpole’s ‘Power 50’ list

Walpole, the official sector body for UK luxury, has today published its second-annual Power List to celebrate the Fifty of the Most Influential People in the British luxury sector. We’re delighted to reveal that Dugdale Bros & Co. CEO Simon Glendenning has been recognised on this prestigious list as an ‘individual with extraordinary expertise in their respective fields.’

A wine merchant turned luxury goods advocate, Simon has spent the majority of his career seeking out and restoring heritage British brands within niche sectors including Wensum Tailoring, Cole & Son and now Dugdale Bros & Co.

This is an absolutely unexpected accolade for which I am truly grateful

‘I’m thrilled to have been recognised by Walpole for my dedication to promoting luxury brands with British provenance, especially whilst in the position of CEO at Dugdale Bros.’

Passionate about promoting local craftsmanship and manufacturing, Simon hopes this accolade will help shine a light on the excellence of Dugdale Bros and that the Huddersfield cloth industry will begin to get the recognition it deserves as being the source of the finest cloth in the world.
