Chief executive, Ben Sherman
The recognisable and much-admired Pan Philippou was hailed as a superb appointment when Brit brand Ben Sherman announced he was set to take over from the charismatic Miles Gray as chief executive from January 2010.
As the former boss of brand house WDT and ex-head of Diesel UK, Philippou has proved he’s comfortable in fashion’s big jobs and has already
said he will drive the strategy laid down by Gray to position Ben Sherman as a premium player in the young fashion market.
And with his contacts, he should be able to open some of the doors the mod-inspired brand has been knocking on.
