Top 100: 06. Sir Philip Green

Owner, Arcadia

Sir Philip Green is back in the top 10 this year on the strength of some high-profile activity around his key fascias, including renewed sponsorship of London Fashion Week via Topshop and the recent launch of the Kardashian Kollection for Dorothy Perkins. His Bhs chain has undergone a facelift and scored rather more highly than usual in the recent round of Drapers’ High Street Hit or Miss visits; he has been an outspoken proponent of the revival in UK manufacturing; and, of course, he has maintained his reputation as a philanthropist by growing his investment in the Fashion Retail Academy among other projects. He remains challenged by a large bricks-and-mortar estate in the UK, but with Topshop going global this has been a good year for him. And - crucially - he turned around last year’s pre-tax loss into a profit this year, despite a drop in sales.

Don’t mention… His taxes.
