Tesco honours brand licensing partners

Retailer honours contributions made over past year as part of its annual conference.

Tesco has honoured a number of its licensing partners – recognising key contributions made over the past year during its annual conference.

Rachel Wakley, head of brand licensing at Tesco, told The Source that they are “really lucky” to be able to work with some amazing people.

“[Our conference] was a great opportunity to share with a number of our key partners, our strategy going forwards, as well as take time to reflect back over the last year,” Rachel said.

“2016 was a fantastic year for brand licensing at Tesco, but none of that success is possible on our own. By working in collaboration with both our licensors and licensees, we were really able to deliver for our customers – and for that partnership we are truly grateful.”

Rachel continued: “As part of the day, we were also able to recognise a number of our partners for their contribution. We are really lucky that we get to work with some amazing people, who are generating great content alongside fantastic products; and it is hugely rewarding to see people share in the success that they helped to shape and develop.”

The winners were as follows:

  • Team of the Year 2016 – Bulldog Licensing
  • Tesco Values Award: Individual – Nick Cooke
  • Tesco Values Award: Licensor – The Point.1888
