Top 100: 42. Ben Banks & Gino da Prato

Co-founders, Fourmarketing

Distributor Fourmarketing’s co-founders Ben Banks and Gino Da Prato have broadened their expertise this year, ramping up their womenswear and premium portfolios. When distributor Mirabel Edgedale fell into administration in June, Fourmarketing acquired a number of its womenswear brands in a bid to increase customer reach on an international level. Last month, the duo also won the distribution rights for 7 For All Mankind, Duchamp and Dsquared’s Intimates range. Banks sat on the panel of judges for BFC Newgen Men programme and his menswear store, Oki-ni, appeared at number 16 on the Drapers Inspiring Independents list in February 2012, all showing the respect this duo are cultivating throughout the industry.
