Abstract: Philip Green (Green) became the fastest billionaire in the corporate history of the UK and earned the reputation as one of the most successful businessmen in the country. Nicknamed as 'canon the barbarian' for his ruthless negotiation skills, Green made his fortune by transforming the fortunes of two ailing clothing chains – British Home Stores and Arcadia Group. In a short career of 20 years, Green built Britain's largest privately-owned retail group and accumulated adequate debt free assets that put him among the top business leaders in the UK.
