Enesco MD to retire

Managing Director Ken Johnson has made the decision to retire at the end of May 2018

Ken has enjoyed a career in the ceramic and gift industry spanning five decades, starting thanks to Anthony Wood and his father Gerald, Ken was fortunate enough to sell their products in London in the Swinging 60s followed by regular trips to the USA and Canada where he first met Enesco and Mr Gene Freedman, someone who has been a huge influence on Ken’s career and whom he regularly quotes, ‘the best is yet to come!’.

Some year later Ken joined Border Fine Arts, who in 1989 became the agents for Enesco in the UK and Ireland. Enesco Ltd as it is known now was formed in 1993 and Ken has been at the helm for the last twelve years.

When asked for a comment, Ken states: 'I have thoroughly enjoyed my career and the many wonderful people I have met over the years. I am looking forward to a relaxing summer.'

Enesco says their loss will be the gain of Ken's five daughters and grandson Solomon. The company wishes Ken a very long, healthy and happy retirement.
