• Stanley Vaughan retires after 55 years in the industry

        • After 30 years of service to the BOSS Business Supplies Charity, Stanley Vaughan stepped down as Chairman in 2012 to be succeeded by Graeme Chapman MBE. Last month, he finally retired as a Trustee of the Charity and was presented with a commemorative plaque by Graeme.

          Stanley has said that one of the most thrilling moments during his involvement for the Charity was receiving £1,000 from a generous industry member following a video of a beneficiary being shown at the BOSS Awards.

          Stanley joined the office products industry in 1964, working for George Rowney. He also worked as Marketing Director at Rexel until he was appointed Managing Director of Swan Stabilo UK.

          Stanley created a very imaginative marketing and customer incentive programme by holding a series of conferences at Stabilo in Nuremberg which are remembered and loved by many due to their intensive product and ‘Beer Keller’ training, the like of which had never been seen before in our industry. He also won awards for his exhibition stands, including one that featured the cast from TV’s ‘Allo ‘Allo.

          For many years, Stanley was also the Secretary and Treasurer of the Society of Old Friends, and some have said that if it hadn’t been for Stanley’s tenacity, the Old Friends might not have continued.

          For the last few years, Stanley has spent a good deal of time cruising overseas, pursuing one of his great loves, travel.
