Wahl (UK) Limited announces passing of Founder and retired Chairman, Brian Hollands

The Wahl family and it’s employees are extremely saddened by the loss of a true gentleman.

Appointed by Mr Jack Wahl in 1987, Brian was responsible for establishing and developing Wahl in the UK and European marketplace. Operating from the humble beginnings of his dining room table, Brian laid the foundations for Wahl’s European success, overseeing the Company’s rapid growth and establishing Wahl as leaders in the barbering and hairdressing industry on this side of the Atlantic.  In 2002 the NHF recognised Brian’s contribution to the craft of hairdressing and presented him with the Companion of Honour award.

Serving as Managing Director until 2002 and subsequently Chairman until his retirement in 2014, Brian gained a reputation for hard work and high expectations and earned respect and trust from everyone who worked with him.  Those qualities are now synonomous with Wahl (UK) Limited and will be a lasting legacy to Brian’s passion and drive for success.
