Retail tycoons ranks first among the richest and the most successful men of the world. We must say that the name Philip Green perhaps lists in the most popular of all. Not just because he is the super successful owner of the Arcadia company that owns brands like Topshop and BHS, but also because of his attention-grabbing, super-lavish lifestyle and an unmistakable charisma.
Philip Green had an affluent life even as a kid, born to a Jewish businessman who was already dealing with a successful chain of retailing and real estate businesses. He went to school at Caramel College in Oxfordshire and things went fine for a while. Tragedy struck the Green family when Philip’s father died of a heart attack and he had to take over the family business.
