Paul Alger, UK Fashion and Textile Association’s (UKFT) director of international business, recently received his Member of the British Empire (MBE) for services to exports in the UK fashion industry. Paul works with a host of fashion and textile brands, helping them develop an expert strategy and routes to market. Alger has been a tireless champion of the industry.

Alger helps companies to make sense of changing export markets but also to adapt to some of the bigger structural changes that are shaping today’s industry like the shrinking independent retail market and the growth of major online players.

He believes that manufacturing and exporting are central to the growth of the UK economy and sees his role as helping to facilitate that by opening up new opportunities, according to British media reports.

“I am absolutely thrilled that Paul’s huge contribution to the industry has been rewarded. He has helped thousands of businesses grow and his knowledge of exporting is encyclopedic. His impact on fashion businesses over the last three decades has been immeasurable. We are extremely proud to have him as our Director of International Business,” UKFT chief executive officer Adam Mansell said.
