Anthony Smith

Chief executive, Shoe Zone

After a two-year period that saw his company almost single-handedly consolidate the footwear sector with its rescue of Stead & Simpson and acquisition of Shoefayre, Anthony Smith has settled into his 550-store portfolio this year.

His focus has mainly been to take stock of the business and begin to rebuild the Stead & Simpson chain. Smith says he is optimistic about next year, but his low profile in 2009 is the reason for his steep fall in the rankings.
