Our customer loyalty is proving most profitable for CPW:
The boss in question is David Ross, 41, and I am not the only one with reason to be grateful for the invention of the mobile. Ross is deputy chairman of Carphone Warehouse, one of Europe’s largest phone retailers, which he set up in 1989 with Charles Dunstone, an old friend from Uppingham school. With an estimated fortune of £562m, Ross is number 113 on this year’s Sunday Times Rich List, and bought Nevill Holt, parts of which date back to the 13th century, in 2000. Its last incarnation was as a boys’ prep school, and it was on the market for £1.1m, though Ross is coy about saying how much he paid for it.
Ahhh. Isn’t that nice? My house cost almost that much but you know, not quite.
(I’m feeling a little class rage at the moment. If you’ll excuse me….)
