Sir Philip Green, 61, created one of Britain’s biggest fashion retailers when he merged BHS with Arcadia in 2009. The group had sales of £2.7bn in 2012, from brands including Burton and Miss Selfridge. Green now plans to expand Topshop and Topman in America, part-funded by the private equity firm Leonard Green & Partners, which bought a 25% stake in the two brands for £350m in December. He also opened Topshop’s first store in Hong Kong this month.
