Managing director, Topman
David Shepherd has spent the past 12 months spearheading the launch of Topman in New York and expanding the retailer’s flagship on Oxford Street in London so that Topman is no longer the poorer brother of Topshop.
Perhaps his greatest achievement this year has been the complete overhaul of the Oxford Circus site, in which he doubled the trading space introduced a raft of cool, credible brands.
Shepherd has also found the time to champion industry charity The Textile Industry Children’s Trust as a trustee
in his spare time.
