Director-general, British Retail Consortium

Stephen Robertson Director-general British Retail Consortium

The popular BRC director-general has pushed the case for the sector hard with the coalition over the past year, and appears to have succeeded in gaining the ear of ministers. Some notable successes over the past year, such as the scrapping of the proposed Scottish supermarket tax, have helped the BRC’s standing grow further, and the arrival of Rob Templeman as chairman will be a further boon.
