Michael Murray, CEO of Frasers Group

Michael Murray, CEO of Frasers Group

Michael Murray is the CEO of Frasers Group, which owns some of Britain’s best known retail brands — including House of Fraser, Sports Direct, Flannels, Jack Wills, and Gieves & Hawkes.

Appointed to the role in May last year at the age of just 33, Michael has overseen an impressive leap in fortunes for the company, at a time when the high street seems in greater flux than ever. In a conversation recorded at the Fraser Group HQ, Michael tells us how his childhood growing up in Doncaster shaped his attitude to hard work and why he feels he was always destined to be an entrepreneur — as well as what the government might do to help the ailing high street, and just what the future of retail might hold.

This episode has been recorded at Mark's Club, read by Joseph Bullmore and produced by Martin Lumsden.
