CHARLIE MULLINS OBE

Businessman

Charlie Mullins OBE, is the very successful businessman & flamboyant founder of Pimlico Plumbers, London's largest independent plumbing company.

 

He started his career after he did his apprenticeship, working from home with a second-hand van & a bag of tools but solely in the Pimlico area. An increasing amount of work came from the recommendations of Pimlico Properties, a local estate agent. This led to Charlie, (aka the Pimlico plumber) being offered a small dimly lit room in their basement, with Charlie mixing plumbing and office work. His ambition was to change the public perception of plumbing and build a reputation.

 

He definitely succeeded! He recently sold 90% of the business for £145 million. From his luxury 3,500sqft sub-penthouse overlooking the Thames you can see the MI6 headquarters, Houses of Parliament, the London Eye and Westminster Cathedral.
