Sad death of well-loved sales agent Paul Brewer

Midlands greeting card agent loses his battle with cancer


Long-time East Midlands greeting card agent Paul Brewer has sadly died at the age of 68 after a short battle with cancer.

Paul began his sales agent career in the mid-1980s covering the Midlands and latterly represented Black Olive, Soosichacha, Louise Tiler, Lisa Angel, and Quire. Previously he had represented publishers including Emotional Rescue, Avanti, Aries and Paper Rose.

Alan Hawkes, former owner of Paper Rose where he was MD between 1984 and 2007, paid tribute to his best friend of 53 years: “He represented some of the best publishers in the industry both past and present and contributed to the success of many retailers and publishers.

“Paul was much liked, and his warm charm, wit and integrity will be missed by his many friends and colleagues in the industry.”
