Andy Rubin

Chief executive, Pentland Brands

Pentland Brands, the company behind super brands such as Lacoste, Speedo and Kickers, passed the £1bn sales barrier last year, marking a huge milestone for the UK’s largest branded fashion supply house.

Chief executive Andy Rubin is a leading figure in the sector, and has been vocal on the importance of investment in product development and innovation through the recession.

Pentland Brands remains a cash-rich business and Rubin took a 25% slice of streetwear brand Gio-Goi at the end of last year. So far, he has played his cards fairly close to his chest on further acquisitions but Rubin, with his investment potential, is definitely one to watch if the market remains this difficult.
