David Schneider, founder and co-CEO, Zalando

Zalando has had another year of setting the agenda in online fashion retail. 

In June, the German etailer unveiled ambitious plans to double in size by 2020 and, although challenging financial conditions led to it achieving just 11.7% revenue growth for the three months to 30 September 2018, rather than the 20%-25% it was aiming for, it says it is on track for its full-year growth target.

David Schneider and his team have turned to new categories this year, opening a beauty store in Berlin in July and throwing their might behind the sector.

This expansion, coupled with entry into new international markets (Ireland and the Czech Republic were on the list in 2018), means Zalando is likely to lead the way for years to come.
