Theo Paphitis: the definitive profile

1 Mins

Theo Paphitis is today one of the best-known entrepreneurs in the UK. His business story is an incredible rollercoaster. And his views on management and business are always fascinating:

“We have a very clear philosophy in this business and all the companies,” says Paphitis. “The customer does not come first. Staff come first, then the customer… If I get them right and they’re happy at their job and they’re incentivised properly, then they’ll look after the customer – no question about it. It’s up to me to get their rewards right and their structure right and be able to motivate them and make sure they’re happy in their job.”
