Simon Marks Summary


Simon Marks: Retail Revolutionary by Paul Bookbinder

Simon, Lord Marks of Broughton, was, in the words of his friend and business rival, Isaac wolfson, "...the greatest merchant prince England ever produced". Born in a poor district of Leeds in 1888, the son of an illiterate Russian immigrant, Simon developed the chain of Penny Bazaars formed by his father and his father's partner, Tom Spencer, into the enormously successful retailing organization we know as Marks & Spencer. Appointed chairman at the age of only 28, Simon Marks was to lead and direct the fortunes of the company for nearly half a century. This fully-illustrated biography is a testament to a remarkable entrepreneur and pioneer, with an inspiring business philosophy and a passionate interest in Zionism, who has left a legacy of his commitment to high quality and good value in every high street.
