Group chairman, Fenwick
Fenwick, the iconic department store chain, again revealed a robust set of results this year. The notoriously secretive family-run business is headed up by group chairman Mark Fenwick, who helped steer the 10-store group to notch up net sales - including concession partners’ sales - of £363.4m in the year to January 30, an increase on the £350.3m recorded the year before.
However, pre-tax profit was £35.6m, down from £41.8m in 2008.
In accounts filed at Companies House in August, Fenwick said it believed the environment would “continue to be competitive” but that it remained “confident in the future of the group”.
