Top 100: 62. Nicky Dulieu

Chief executive, Hobbs

It’s been a year of expansion for Hobbs, under the direction of chief executive Nicky Dulieu. After reporting a 7.4% increase in turnover last year, the company invested £18m in its multichannel integration and launched its mobile site in March. Plans are under way for further international expansion following the launch of its new sub-brand Hobbs Invitation this year, while change is also afoot internally, with the appointment of Helen Williamson (ex-Ted Baker) as buying and merchandising director and Gracia Amico (ex-Topman) as head of commerce . Dulieu has remained loyal to Hobbs’ core customer with a perfectly balanced collection of trend-led pieces interpreted for a more mature shopper, while drawing in a slightly younger generation via sub-brand NW3.
