Speaking of the ceremony, John Lawson commented:

Awards like these celebrate the good independents we have on the high street and how it’s vital to keep the high street alive. Congratulations and well done to all the winners.”

He is a great visionary and very responsive to market trends. He was brave enough to make decisions that seemed strange at the time but he saw where the future would be. He has the respect of his colleagues and his peers. One of his key things is honesty – it's one of the main pillars. I am delighted for my father and think the award is well deserved, I am very proud of him.”
