Chief executive of ClearlySo Rodney Schwartz
- He made his name on Wall Street in 1983 when he put a sell call on the entire investment banking sector while everyone else was saying buy. He turned out to be right.
- He stood for parliament for the Lib Dems in 1997. Looking to boost their financial kudos, they put him up for an unwinnable seat in Welwyn Hatfield.
- He was kicked out of school at 15. His parents sent him to a religious school which he hated, and one day his misbehaviour (including some swearing at his teacher) got him expelled.
