GRAND RAPIDS – Henry A. (Happy) Fox Jr., chairman of a three-generation family owned beverage distributorship in Grand Rapids, has been awarded a lifetime achievement award by the Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of America, the national trade association for wine and spirits distributors.
Fox is the second generation to lead Henry A. Fox Sales Co., a business established in Grand Rapids in 1952 that today is one of Michigan’s leading distributors of fine wines, and premium, imported and craft beers. Fox’s son Brien is president of the company, which delivers to all 83 Michigan counties.
“I am honored and humbled to receive an award for doing something that I have loved doing since I was a teenager in the 1960s, and that’s providing quality service, delivering the best products and giving back to our community,” Fox said. “Henry A. Fox Sales Co. is a success today because of our team of men and women who work hard and put our customers and our community first every single day, for the past 60-plus years. Our family of co-workers takes pride in providing best-of-class value in the marketplace every day and as a team, we have positioned our company to succeed well into the 21st century.”
WSWA’s Wholesaler Lifetime Leadership Award is presented each year to a distributor whose contribution to the association, the community and the beverage industry defines excellence, inspires loyalty and exemplifies leadership. The award will be presented to Fox at the WSWA convention in Orlando, Fla., on April 13.
