Philip Green - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sir Philip Green (born 15 March 1952) is a British businessman and the CEO of the Arcadia Group, a retail giant that includes Topshop, BHS and Dorothy Perkins.

Philip Green was born on 15 March 1952 in Croydon, in South London,[3] the son of a successful Jewish property developer and retailer.[4] He has a sister, Elizabeth, five years his senior. His family moved to Hampstead Garden Suburb, a middle-class enclave in north London, and at the age of nine he was sent to the now-closed Jewish boarding school Carmel College in Oxfordshire. When his father died of a heart attack, Philip was in line to inherit the family business at the age of twelve. After leaving boarding school at 15, he worked for a shoe importer before travelling to the US, Europe and the Far East. It was on his return that he set up his first business with a £20,000 loan, importing jeans from the Far East to sell on to retailers in London.

In 1979, Green bought up the entire stock of ten designer label clothes sellers who had gone into receivership for extremely low prices. He then had the newly bought clothes sent to the dry cleaners, got them put on hangers, wrapped them in polythene to make them look new, and then bought a place to sell them to the public.[5]
