05 Nick Robertson

Chief executive, Asos  

Nick Robertson storms into the top 10 after another impressive year. The first six months saw Asos’s profits rocket 41% to £28.6m, and even in the face of a tough UK market, when UK sales grew only 1% in the three months to September, he oversaw a 141% rise in international sales. Sites launches in Australia, Italy and Spain, and marketing initiatives such as interactive menswear campaign Urban Tour have kept the etailer ahead of the competition. Robertson was awarded an OBE in June, marking him out as a true entrepreneur and an icon of online retailing.

Did you know… He’s the great-grandson of Austin Reed

Last year’s position 12
