Ken Cupitt has been elected Master of the Worshipful Company of Launderers with his inauguration taking place on 21 June at Launderers’ Hall. Cupitt began his career in the industry in the 1960s and also joined the Guild of Cleaners and Launderers in that decade and has been a WCL Liveryman for many years.
He is one of the GCL’s longest serving members. It was not long before his talents showed through and he was asked to join the National Council, where he remains to this day as chairman, having graced every senior position on the Council.
Under his leadership the Guild has survived, largely due to his leadership skills and dedication in sharing his knowledge and experience.
Cupitt has long taken on the mantle of provider of education, information, and support services within the laundry and drycleaning industries for which, in his retirement, he continues to work tirelessly.
The outgoing Master of the Worshipful Company of Launderers is Captain Jack Strachan MBE who was inaugurated in July 2019.
