Karl-Johan Persson, the 41 year old CEO and President of Swedish high street fashion brand H&M. He joined the company in 2005 as an operational manager and in just 4 years assumed the role of CEO.
H&M was founded in 1947 by his grandfather Erling Persson. Initially it was called Hennes (meaning Her’s in Swedish). Later the company acquired Mauritz Widforss, hence the new name Hennes & Mauritz, aka H&M. Soon, it expanded across Europe. It opened its doors to the US customers in 2000, with its new store on Fifth Avenue, New York City. The company currently has over 3900 stores across the world.

I first met Prakash (PK) Menon during the private equity purchase of Myer, incorporating extraction from Coles Myer. I came on board as CEO in 2006 and PK, for a fiveyear period, was a highly involved, important member of the Executive team. Over the years, I have come to experience not only his strong business acumen, but also his baring wit, wisdom, and his ability to tell a good story. All these are demonstrated in PKs memoir, making for a fascinating and entertaining read.

Prakash 'PK' is an extraordinary individual. He is someone who will fast become one of your trusted advisors should you meet with him. No doubt his professional career qualifies him as one of the leading authorities on Retail Supply Chains. I encourage people to explore his work on DRIVE. His story DRIVEN – from Mumbai to Myers is a ripping read and chock full of amazing insights on what it takes to succeed in life and business. I highly recommend PK to anyone wanting to get ahead in life.
Gaurav WankhedeRoyal Australian Air Force
For me Prakash has been a Friend, Philosopher & a guide. I have always taken inspiration from the way Prakash has risen to the pinnacle in his field. He was just a phone call away for any advice, be it career of personal. Prakash is a born leader and a very dedicated family man. His ability to balance his work and personal life is also worth mentioning here. Any organisation that Prakash works for would benefit from his style and drive to deliver excellence in whichever area he works in.
