Chief executive, Kurt Geiger
When US retail giant Jones Group snapped up Kurt Geiger this year, netting its private equity seller Graphite Capital £215m, Graphite said the success of the premium footwear retailer was down to the leadership of Neil Clifford. He ensured the company’s EBITDA for the full year to January 29 rocketed 38.7% to £18.8m. In August, Clifford unveiled a premium accessories range and relaunched Kurt Geiger’s website. A US launch now beckons.
