Harrods managing director and Walpole chairman Michael Ward commands a huge amount of respect within the industry. This year, he has led Harrods to continued success, as the business hit £2bn in sales for the first time during the year to 28 January.

This success resulted in part from a swift response to an uplift in trade following the Brexit vote, as international shoppers flocked to the luxury retailer to take advantage of weaker sterling. Ward has also shifted Harrods towards a more experiential model – opening a wellness clinic in its Knightsbridge flagship – while simultaneously focusing on improving its digital business.
