Stuart Rose of M&S chosen as Business Leader Of The Year

The World Leadership Forum has chosen Stuart Rose, Chief Executive of Marks and Spencer, as their Business Leader of the Year.

The World Leadership Forum recently contacted the chief executives of nearly a thousand medium to large British businesses and asked them to nominate the business leader they most admired. The clear winner was Stuart Rose.

Malcolm Turner, President of the World Leadership Forum said: "We are delighted to announce that Stuart Rose is the winner of our Business Leader of the Year Award. He is plainly Britain's most admired businessman, having dramatically improved Marks and Spencer's fortunes while operating in a notoriously competitive and fickle market.”:

“We organised this award because we think that recent television programmes such as 'The Apprentice', or 'Trouble at the Top', bear little relation to the reality of corporate life. Worse still they often give young people, at the outset of their careers, an image of business which is inaccurate and damaging. We believe that highlighting the work of the best business leaders, and the best management practice, will pay dividends to the wider business world and give young people a less distorted view of commerce."

Appointed Chief Executive in May 2004, Stuart Rose first joined Marks & Spencer in 1972. He moved to the Burton Group in 1989, becoming Chief Executive of the Multiples Division in 1994. He joined Argos plc in 1997 as Chief Executive to defend the takeover bid from GUS.

He then became Chief Executive of Booker plc, which merged with Iceland plc in 2000. He joined Arcadia Group plc as Chief Executive and left in 2002 following its acquisition.
