Chief executive, Moss Bros
Brian Brick, the former owner of SRG and the Suits You chain, was appointed permanent chief executive of Moss Bros in March this year. To date, he has kept his plans close to his chest, and while losses widened in the first half Brick did manage to hold onto margin and reduce stock levels. Better still, Moss’s suiting market share by value rose from 3% to 5.1% over the 26-week period to July 19.
Moss continues to dominate the hire market and was linked to a possible purchase of hire firm Etiquette in recent weeks. Brick’s bigger plans should begin to become evident next year though.
