John King

Former CEO House of Fraser.

John spent 8 years running the retailer and is heralded for his successful turnaround of the brand, which led to a $480million acquisition by China’s Sanpower Group last year. During his term, the department store posted a significant rise in sales despite the economic downturn showing that it was possible to thrive amid growing fears of a slump in the High Street. Prior to joining House of Fraser, John was the CEO of Matalan and Chief Operating Officer at Delta USA.
