Clive Bayley - CEO, Fonehouse
The ever affable Fonehouse chief has moved with the times, with Fonehouse one of the cheerier stories in retail during the past year. Bayley moved the company into b2b, with branches selling a mix of mobile, fixed-line and cloud services. But this has not come at the expense of its more traditional offer, with Fonehouse continuing to stay ahead of the high street downturn. Bayley remains refreshingly open and optimistic about the retailer’s future. He admitted that he let two senior executives go from the business earlier this year because he was getting ‘bored’ of the business. This is a statement you would never hear from the CEO of Marks & Spencer.
