Timothy Maltin
Age
: 32
Company: Hardy Amies

Introduced to the late Sir Hardy Amies by his great aunt who modelled for the prestigious fashion house in the 1940s, former grave maintenance entrepreneur Maltin brokered a deal to buy the then ailing company for a mere £200,000 in 1997. By cutting wastage and modernising its archaic structures, Maltin has stemmed losses of £2m. He reversed it onto OFEX before last month taking it to AIM with a market cap of £5m. He's also raised £6m for the company through a private equity deal and licensing agreements for non-couture and overseas ranges. Maltin is relaunching the 14 Saville Row store in October with an aggressive media campaign.

2017 update:

Maltin stepped away from Hardy Amies in 2007 and joined Lehmann Communications as chairman in 2007. He remained there for just a year before setting up his own PR firm in 2008 Maltin PR, which specialises in professional services PR including law firms. He has also written books on the Titanic and even presented a feature length documentary on the Titanic for National Geographic.
