Michelle Mone OBE
CEO & Founder, Ultimo, and Co-owner of Ultimo Brands International
Michelle Mone OBE is the co-owner of Ultimo Brands International and founder of Ultimo, one of the UK’S designer leading lingerie brands. Michelle is regularly listed as one of the UK’s top female entrepreneurs and has built a hugely successful career on one incredibly simple concept: helping women to look and feel their very best.
Over the years Michelle’s empire has gone from strength to strength, developing beyond the original umbrella of Ultimo to encompass 15 patented inventions and brands including Ultimo Bridal, Ultimo Swimwear, Ultimo Black Label and joint venture lines including ‘Adore Moi by Ultimo’ for Debenhams. In 2012, after three years of intensive research and over £1 million spent on development, Michelle launched into the world of beauty with a range of tanning products, UTan.
Michelle is a regular fixture on national television, and most recently fronted a campaign for British Airways. Her autobiography ‘My Fight to the Top’ was released in March 2015.
