Has the high street just lost its best retailer? WH Smith announced today that Stephen Clarke was bowing out after six years at the helm. When he took the reins from Kate Swann in 2013, the City held its breath. Some were concerned he would not be able to match her relentless approach to costs in favour of protecting the bottom line. Six years later it’s fair to say they needn’t have worried. Clarke has not only grown profits to record levels but the share price has trebled over the past six years from below 800p to £20.24 yesterday. This is all the more impressive when the retail sector has been drowning in doom and gloom.
