Top Track 250

Liberty’s iconic department store on Regent Street closed in March, but has since reopened with reduced services. Private equity group Bluegem Capital bought the firm for £32m in 2010. It sold its remaining 40% stake to a consortium led by Glendower Capital in a deal valuing Liberty at £300m last year, as sales hit £140.5m. Known for its haberdashery, designer brands and mock Tudor façade, the retailer is led by chief executive Adil Mehboob-Khan, 56, who is investing in online sales.
