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.
