Philip Green - Head of Arcadia

Sir Philip Green is one of Britain's most successful businessmen. Since buying retail group Arcadia in 2002 he sits at the head of a conglomerate with shops on nearly every British high street.


In August 2010 he was asked by the government to advise on efficiency, a role that put his tax planning in the full glare of a critical media and political spotlight.

Save BHS campaigners light up London landmarks as retailer administration rumbles on,Campaigners trying to rescue iconic high street retailer BHS turned some of London's landmarks red, white and blue last night, with a city-wide campaign to find a saviour for the chain. Marble Arch, Wellington Arch, Blackfriars Bridge and BHS' Marylebone head office were among the buildings lit up by campaigners with the message #SaveBHS last night. The retailer entered administration last month, putting up to 11,000 jobs at risk, as financial woes pile up. Administrators Duff & Phelps are thought to have had at least 50 expressions of interest in the business, including from Mike Ashley's Sports Direct.
