92 Peter Lucas

Chief executive officer of Baird Group; chairman of UK Fashion and Textile Association

Industry stalwart Peter Lucas continues to head up trade body UKFT, despite a restructuring of the board in September. With Lucas as chairman, the UKFT has been a strong supporter of Drapers’ Save Our Skills campaign, with the industry organisation teaming up with Drapers to host a debate for UK manufacturers, discussing the challenges they face and the potential solutions. In his chief executive role at menswear supplier Baird Group, Lucas led an acquisition of 12 of collapsed menswear chain Suits You’s 66 stores, and relaunched them under the Suit Direct fascia.

What he says… “This is my dream job, but if I couldn’t do this then I’d like to be a farmer.”
