Born on: 15th Mar 52 Born in: United Kingdom Marital status: Married Occupation: Businessperson
Born Sir Philip Nigel Ross Green has an estimated net worth of $5.2 billion  according to Forbes as of March 2014. Philip Green, a British business tycoon known for his aggressive business strategies and audacious lifestyle has reached billionaire status faster than anyone else in British history. Reckoned as Britain’s fourth richest citizen with a fortune valued at $5.6 billion, the retail mogul is a man with a fine attention to retail. Owner of British Home Stores, this 57-year old man is known for transforming the sedate picture of British retailing, and for building his high street brand empire comprising of Topshop, Dorothy Perkins, Miss Selfridge and BHS. Born in 1952 in Croydon, Philip is a middle class Jewish boy who left his school at the age of 15, and started to serve his apprenticeship in the fashion industry. Philip started and failed four times with his business, until the fifth time, he made it with rescuing retail chain Jean Jeanie, and selling it to Lee Cooper, earning enormous profit along with name and fame. Further, he gained real recognition for his profitable takeovers; he bought ailing BHS from Storehouse in year 2000, and Arcadia two years later, making a fortune worth of millions which he transferred to his Monaco tax havens. He is one of the few British retailers who break the US, with Topshop. His three failed attempts to buy Marks & Spencer achieved him national notoriety, and he was even portrayed as greedy corporate villain and shrewd marketer by M&S management. Accustomed to such charges, Green lives a lavish lifestyle and is often being called as “flash” and “the king of jackpot capitalism”. Green loves to spend more of his time in Monaco with his wife Tina Green, owner of Arcadia and their children, Brandon and Chloe. Green often appears in media alongside beautiful, Kate Moss, a business partner he teamed up with to create a successful clothing line. This self-made billionaire loves to splash out his pounds; he owns a super luxury yacht Lionheart and is a preeminent fixture on the London party scene. He is reportedly planning to launch a multi-billion pound entertainment venture named Greenwell, with his friend Simon Cowell, the American Idol judge. This quick-witted boss of Topshop and BHS, controls 12% of the UK market, and still prefers to hunt alone.

The arrangment helps him evade a lots of tax, that he would have to pay if he was a British resident. Whenever he is in London for business, he stays at his favorite hotel.
