UK: BFC chairman Tillman extends term
Harold Tillman CBE is set to become the longest-serving chairman of the British Fashion Council (BFC) after his term was extended for another 12 months.
Tillman was appointed chairman in January 2008, taking over from Sir Stuart Rose and initially serving a three-year term before that was extended last year.
The BFC highlighted his achievements as chairman, including the establishment of the first full-time management team for the organisation, headed by CEO Caroline Rush and COO Simon Ward.
Tillman, the BFC added, had played a leading role in relocating London Fashion Week to Somerset House and had negotiated personally with brands such as Burberry to return to the event.
“The BFC is immensely grateful to Harold for the incredible hard work he has put into the role,” said Rush. “He has been an inspirational and visionary leader, and under him the BFC and London Fashion Week have significantly expanded and grown in global stature.”
