Richard Bradbury

Chief executive, River Island

Richard Bradbury’s 2009 moment came in July when River Island delivered record sales and profits for the year to the end of December. Pre-tax profits rose 5.4% to £160.5m on sales of £766m, in stark contrast to the previous year when pre-tax profits fell 3.6%.

The chain has not been immune to the recession, but its focus on the core young fashion customer has set it in good stead to weather the downturn.

Bradbury continued to champion young retail talent this year by calling on the industry to do more to support young people who want to build a career in the fashion business.
