Four years ago, bed and mattress superstore Dreams was bought out of administration by the European division of Sun Capital, an American private equity firm. It acquired its manufacturing plant, supply chain and 171 best stores, and installed a new chief executive, Mike Logue, 45. He has streamlined operations and invested in staff, products and logistics, leading to profits of £32.6m in 2016, more than double the year before.
