Our attention was first brought to Theo Paphitis many moons ago when he was running Milwall FC. Like many entrepreneurs, he did not find it a particularly edifying experience. At the same time, he was also turning around the lingerie chain La Senza and showing the high street bosses that when it comes to retail, it’s the dirty stuff such as merchandising that makes a difference.

I recommend a read of this definitive profile.
Theo Paphitis was a VIP guest at the CBI/Real Business Growing Business Awards last week. Read all about the celebrity entrepreneurs and winners here.
