80 Mark Newton-Jones

Chief executive, Shop Direct 

It’s been a strategic year for Mark Newton-Jones; the hiring of former Clarks finance director Mark McMenemy and Asda marketing director Jon Owen will only bear fruit next year.

In October, he announced the launch of a discount site, BrandQuarter, which, if successful, will receive further investment next year. He also declared the phased launch of Very in the US and 47 other countries. Celebrity collaborations with Fearne Cotton, Holly Willoughby and Robbie Williams’ brand Farrell kept Shop Direct in the public eye.

Last year’s position 74
