Chairman, All Saints
What a difference a year makes.
Smiling pair Kevin Stanford and Stephen Craig’s joint number one and two positions in 2009 and 2010 respectively feel like a million years ago. After a public falling out with Craig, who left All Saints in September citing a “lack of clarity” from Stanford, all eyes are on when, and more importantly who, will be appointed the young fashion chain’s next chief executive. It was a turbulent year indeed, as private equity firms Lion Capital and Goode Partners rescued All Saints from administration in May, injecting £105m to help it pay off debt and give it a significant net cash surplus. Who knows what 2012 will hold for this once-pioneering retailer.
