Video: Primark founder Arthur Ryan collects outstanding achievement award

Famously private Primark founder Arthur Ryan stepped into the limelight last night at the Oracle Retail Week Awards.

Ryan made his first-ever public appearance to collect the Outstanding Contribution to Retail award at the event - which was run by Drapers’ sister title Retail Week - in a ceremony held last night at the Grosvenor House Hotel.

His friend Sir Philip Green, owner of Arcadia, presenting the award via a video, said: “This is a man who richly deserves this award. He’s tirelessly developed and built one of the UK’s great businesses.”

Primark also won Oracle Retailer of the Year.
