Chief executive
Best Buy International

Much more visible in the run-up to the opening of the retailer’s UK stores, Willet has fully embraced the retailer’s special culture. The Englishman spent time at Littlewoods and Accenture, but is a key part of the famed Minneapolis-based retailer’s set-up.

He is still holding his cards close to his chest on when the stores will open - and when questioned is always quick to point out that he delayed Best Buy’s Chinese debut three times to make sure he got it right.
