About 2 Years, 11 Months, 3 Weeks, 5 Days, 11 Hours, 14 Minutes ago.
She’s become a favourite of the New York Fashion Week schedule, has just opened her first store in London…and now she’s been named Britain’s Top Entrepreneur.
Victoria Beckham first came into the limelight as member of the pop band Spice Girls, but has since gone on to make a name for herself as fashion designer, making it to first place on Management Today’s Britain’s Top 100 Entrepreneurs ranking. Her eponymous fashion label has grown from strength to strength, selling ready-to-wear, a diffusion line, accessories, eyewear and denim. She recently made headlines when she opened her first store on Mayfair’s prestigious Dover Street.
Management Today’s rankings are based on a business’ turnover, the amount of jobs it has created and its overall value. In Victoria Beckham’s case, sales have increased by 2900%, the company has gone from three to 100 members of staff and the designer is now worth £210m, all in the space of five years.
Also on the list, Amit and Meeta Patel followed close in her footsteps, coming in second place for pharmaceutical company Auden Mckenzie, whilst Mahmud Kamani came third with e-commerce boohoo.com. According to Management Today, the 100 entrepreneurs on the list are collectively worth £25bn, playing a decisive role in the UK’s economy.
