Rough, tough, uncompromising and someone who will not suffer fools under any conditions, Alan Michael Sugar is a person to be admired and respected. Whether or not you actually like him is another matter entirely.
Lord Sugar's rise to the world of the rich and famous is truly a rags to riches story. He was born into a very poor family and started his amazing career and business life with next to nothing. The former Chairman and CEO of computer giant AMSTRAD, he now holds most of his multi-million dollar fortune in property and other assets. Married for over 40 years to Ann, and the father of 3, Lord Sugar has never been one to rest on his laurels. These days, he is best known for his job as host of the UK version of 'The Apprentice' where he delights in making everyone as uncomfortable as possible and knows a decent employee when he sees one(usually.)
He tends to talk about himself a lot but I suppose that can be excused given that he had nothing when he began and is now a Peer, a good friend of Mohammed Al-Fayed and worth more money than most people could ever dream of. While everyone knows that football is his great passion, he doesn't advertise his enormous contributions to children's charities nearly as much as many others do. The renowned Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital is his personal favourite and he is one of their largest contributors.
Love or loathe him, you certainly can't help but be impressed by him.moreless
