After almost half a century at the UK’s premier fishing and country store, Brian Fratel is retiring.
During his time at Farlows, the world famous Pall Mall retail outlet in London – most recently as Director of Fishing – Fratel has met kings, queens and princes, lords and ladies and dukes and maharajahs and is viewed as the epitome of ‘Mr Farlows’. He joined the company in 1968 on a salary of £8 a week.
Managing Director Robin Philpott said: “Brian has been at the heart of Farlows for longer than most people remember so his retirement truly is the end of an era. He will be missed by colleagues and customers alike, but thankfully he has done a great job helping to equip the rest of our team with the knowledge they need to continue the Farlows tradition of expertise and exemplary service.”
