Retail Insider has launched the 2017 edition of the ‘Movers & Shakers in Retail Top 100’ report that highlights the key individuals in retail that are harnessing the power of digital to push their organisations forward.
The constituents of this year’s publication show the dramatic shifts that are taking place in the retail sector as Jose Neves, founder of Farfetch took top spot, and his colleagues Andrew Robb, COO, Stephanie Phair, chief strategy officer, and Elliott Jordan, CFO, took third place. Peter Williams, chairman of Boohoo.com was sandwiched between them, which highlights the growing need for retailers to seek advice from experienced digital players who are taking various non-executive and chair roles.
Sponsored by K3 Retail, the report contains 100 individuals from the sector, with the Top 40 in ranked order based on specific criteria as judged by a specially selected Advisory Panel comprising: Simon Belsham, former CEO of NotOnTheHighStreet.com, Jonathan Wall, retail advisor; Peter Williams, chairman of Boohoo.com; Alison Lancaster, interim marketing director at House of Fraser; Indira Thambiah, CEO of C P Hart; Orlando Martins, founder of ORESA Executive Search; and Daniel Bobroff, founder of Coded Futures.
The 2017 report also shows how fashion is increasingly leading the way in terms of digital because along with Farfetch and Williams, the Top 10 also includes Mahmud Kamani and Carol Kane of Boohoo.com, Ray Kelvin and Craig McKinnon Smith at Ted Baker, and Nitin Passi of Missguided.
