13 David Shepherd

Managing director, Topman

It’s his ability to flex with market changes and deliver strong figures that’s kept Shepherd as top man at Topman for so long. Starting out as a Saturday boy in Topshop, he’s kicked Topman on again this year, beating competitors to the punch with the big trends. Industry insiders say Topman is Arcadia’s best-performing fascia, with some of the strongest like-for-like sales on the high street. Combine that with international expansion in the US, cool collaborations with the likes of footwear label Mr Hare and a broader branded offer, and Topman is all set for a strong 2012.

Don’t mention… The ‘domestic violence’ T-shirt.

Last year’s position 35
