Huge congratulations from everyone at CAT to Joe Elliott for his inclusion in the New Year’s Honours List.
Although it wasn’t for services to retailing, we’re delighted that Joe has been recognised for his efforts in another walk of life.
It is for services to museums that Joseph Warden Elliott is now a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, in fact, thanks to his role as Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Coventry Transport Museum.
Perhaps he can notch up to an OBE next year if Elliotts store in Coventry is reborn as vibrant as he hopes, or for his work with the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children or as Life President of Coventry City Football Club.
Actually, that last one might deserve a knighthood…
