Kicking off the series, we’re excited to be delving into the life of someone who built themselves from the ground up, Founder of Pimlico Plumbers, and Britans first “millionaire plumber”, Charlie Mullins OBE. 


Special Guest Speaker: Charlie Mullins OBE – Founder of Pimlico Plumbers


Former plumbing apprentice Charlie Mullins OBE is the archetypal entrepreneur having started a business from scratch and building it into a multi-million-pound enterprise, which he sold in 2021 for more than £120m.

Outspoken and often controversial, Charlie has starred in Channel 4’s ‘Secret Millionaire’, ‘Show Me Your Money’ and the BBC’s ‘Young Plumber of the Year’ programmes. Most recently he’s featured in Channel 4’s ‘How’d You Get So Rich’ with Katherine Ryan and Micky Flanagan’s ‘Thinking Aloud’ on Sky 1. Charlie is also aregular business commentator in the national media. He most recently appeared, with his fiancé, singer/songwriter Raquel Reno, on BBC1 series Unbreakable.

Launched by Charlie in 1979 with just a bag of tools and a very old van bought at auction, Pimlico Plumbers has more than 300 professional trades people (including plumbers, carpenters, electricians, roofers, builders and locksmiths) and a support team of around 130 staff serving customers across London including some of the world’s most famous names including Simon Cowell, Dame Helen Mirren, Joanna Lumley, Joan Collins, Keira Knightly, Daniel Craig and Richard Branson to name but a few.

Charlie sold the business to US-based Neighborly, which is the world’s largest franchisor of home services, in 2021.

Charlie is strongly focused on apprenticeships and is a firm believer in giving young people a chance to develop their skills, in order that they reach their true potential.

He was awarded an OBE for services to plumbing in the 2014 Queen’s New Year’s Honours and his autobiography, Bog Standard Business was published in 2015.

This interview will be hosted by our founder, Rosie Coxshaw where Charlie will be discussing the nitty gritty of how he built Pimlico Plumbers, selling up and what’s coming next!
