Ed Burstell

Before taking the top job at Liberty in 2008 (since when he's presided over double-digit year-on-year growth), Ed was Senior Vice President at Bergdorf Goodman and General Manager of upscale fashion accessories boutique, Henri Bendel. Ed became known for his flamboyant and gregarious personality as the star of Channel 4's three-part Liberty of London documentary, which aired in December 2013 and netted viewing figures of 2.2 million per episode. The second series aired in November 2014 and discussions are in train for a third season. From all over the world, Liberty now welcomes in excess of 5 million people each year. Ed also writes for The New York Times and The Financial Times..
