Richard Emanuel MBE 1999

Richard EmanuelThe mobile phone has changed our lives. But it has also made Richard Emanuel one of Scotland's most significant entrepreneurs. In 1991, aged 23, he set up his first business with a £3,000 overdraft. He created DX Communications, a mobile phone sales company in Glasgow. By the age of 30, he had sold the business to BT Cellnet for £42 million.

The mobile phone is still at the heart of his continued success,  now with a home on the Cote D'Azur, a business based in Holland, and a repair company in Scotland, Richard has global interests in the mobile communications business.
