The Damaged Goods: The Inside Story of Sir Philip Green Collapse of BHS and the Death of the High Street [9780241341186]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

In March 2015, British businessman and the chairman of Arcadia Group Sir Philip Green sold BHS for GBP1 to Retail Acquisitions, owned by Dominic Chappell, a serial bankrupt who filed BHS for administration shortly after. By April 2016, BHS had debts of GBP1.3bn, including a pensions deficit of GBP571m.

Damaged Goods follows Green's journey to the big time, the sale of BHS and the subsequent investigation that concluded with Green paying GBP363m to the Pensions Regulator. In Damaged Goods, Oliver Shah, the award-winning journalist who first broke the story, shines a light on Green's past and Arcadia's uncertain future; this is the extraordinary account of the retail magnate Sir Philip Green's life and his relationship with the high street.

Oliver Shah is the award-winning City Editor of The Sunday Times and one of the most respected national commentators on business and the high street. He was named business journalist of the year at the 2017 Press Awards for his investigation into Sir Philip Green and was named business journalist of the year at the 2017 London Press Club Awards. Shah has been interviewed on Radio Four's Today Programme, BBC News, BBC Five Live and Sky News. He studied English Literature at Cambridge University and journalism at City University before joining City AM in 2009 and The Sunday Times in 2010. Aged 33, Shah lives in east London.
