The 2015 Lifetime Achievement Honor celebrates Henschel’s four decades of leadership in the gift industry and marks the longevity and growth of Norman’s Hallmark, founded 75 years ago with a single store in Trenton, New Jersey.
Under Henschel’s direction and vision, Norman’s Hallmark has grown to become one of the largest Hallmark Gold Crown retailers in the country with 46 stores located throughout the Philadelphia area and central New Jersey.
“Howard Henschel is the epitome of the American success story,” notes Portman. “His achievements are grounded in the genius of private enterprise, which ICON HONORS has long championed. Howard’s long and prolific career is but a precursor to what he will yet accomplish,” Portman adds.
At the 2015 Ceremonies, the home and gift industry’s best and brightest will be celebrated. Guests will enjoy a cocktail reception, dinner and a live performance by legendary duo Hall & Oates in an unforgettable evening of inspiration in celebration of this year’s finalists and Honorees.
The ICON HONORS 2015 celebration is scheduled for Thursday, July 9 at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta. Please visit www.ICONHONORS.com for details and to purchase tickets and tables.
