MO CHAUDRY – ENTREPRENEUR EXTRAORDINAIRE
Born in Pakistan, but raised and schooled in Shropshire, Mo Chaudry has become one of the richest and most successful Asian businessmen in the UK.
He remembers having his ‘lightbulb moment’ when sweeping floors as a teenager at the GKN Sankey factory in Telford, and thinking: “I don’t want to be doing hard manual work for the next 30 or 40 years. I need to make a life for myself.” And that’s exactly what he did. He had earned his first million by the age of 30 as a financial adviser and property investor, and is now worth more than £100 million.
Mo gave away tens of thousands of pounds to worthy community causes in need of a lucky break when he appeared on the Channel Four TV show Secret Millionaire and is also the man who took the risk of backing Eddie Hall, becoming his manager and sponsor. Mo guided Eddie to become The World’s Strongest Man and now continues to Manage him in his media career. Mo also remains a long-time supporter of Wellington Boxing Academy.
