DAD DUTY: The National Father’s Day Council has named Vince Camuto recipient of this year’s Father of the Year award. The father of five will be honored June 4 at the 73rd annual Father of the Year Awards luncheon at the New York Hilton Hotel. Previous winners include Presidents John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan, Colin Powell and Norman Schwarzkopf.
“My children are my proudest accomplishment,” said Camuto, who revealed that he launched his men’s lifestyle business in 2013 due to his son’s difficulty finding a well-fitting suit. “Even at the office, I feel like everyone is family. Family is what is most important to me.”
