Position last year: 45
Since Brian McCluskey led the sale of Office to South African retailer Truworths International for £256m in November 2015, the retail boss has been keeping a low profile. The management team, led by McCluskey, remained in place following the sale and it is understood they still own an 11% stake in the business.
Sales at Office were up 5.5% to £270.2m for the year to 25 January, while like-for-like sales edged up 1.2% and EBITDA was up 15%. The retailer has more than 150 stores and concessions in the UK, Ireland, Germany, so it remains a key player in the footwear market.
