The Fragrance Shop appoints retail veteran Peter Cowgill as first Non-Executive Chairman

The Fragrance Shop today (23 November) announced it had appointed retail veteran Peter Cowgill to be its first non-executive chairman. 

Peter will take up the role immediately working closely with CEO Sanjay Vadera and his leadership team as The Fragrance Shop steps up its ambitious growth plans. 

The appointment of its first non-executive chairman comes after the Manchester-based retailer recently unveiled increased annual sales and profits and a move into a new state-of-the-art low carbon headquarters and distribution centre at Trafford Park. 

As the executive chairman at JD Sports, Peter was one of the key players in the footwear retailer’s growth, earning him a reputation as one of the country’s most accomplished retailers. 

Welcoming Peter to the team, Sanjay Vadera MBE said “We’re delighted to welcome Peter to the TFS family.  

“With our proven strategy and clear momentum, we know The Fragrance Shop can develop into a world-leading multi-channel retailer. 

“We’re looking forward to the counsel and experience Peter will bring as we expand and grow.”   

On taking the role Peter said: “I feel very privileged to take on this role at an exciting time for the business as it continues to execute its growth strategy.  

“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.”
