Peter Jones - Judge
Peter Jones is one of the most successful and versatile business gurus in the UK, with interests spanning telecommunications, business services, publishing and fashion, as well as television. He created a $300 million empire from scratch and continues to invest in and build a diverse portfolio of business interests.
Jones found fame as one of the panelists on the hit BBC business reality show, Dragon's Den. His honest, off-the-cuff comments made him an audience favorite and catapulted his celebrity status well beyond the business world. In 2005 he established Peter Jones TV to initially develop original television programming with a business twist, but has future plans to extend the company's range of interests and programming to create a significant television and media group.
Jones recently closed a deal with ITV to produce original programming through Peter Jones TV, and is currently in production on the highly anticipated primetime show, Tycoon, which seeks to discover the UK's next business sensation. Jones continues to focus on future opportunities for his emerging empire, and is currently developing a number of new business-related entertainment television shows for the UK and U.S. markets.
