Commercial background

Nicholas Charles Tyrwhitt Wheeler had the idea for Charles Tyrwhitt in 1986, whilst studying Geography at Bristol University. He set out to make the best shirts, using only the finest materials, at great value and with unbeatable service.

After a stint with strategy consultants Bain & Co, Nick went "full-time" in 1990. Financed by a foray into the classic car market, he started with 8 shirts and 8 ties in a single page leaflet.

This led to the opening of a Jermyn Street shop in 1997, a website in 1998 and overseas expansion with a Paris store in 2001 and a New York store on Madison Avenue in 2003.

The company continues to grow rapidly in the UK and internationally with a team of 845 incredible people.

Nick is chairman and majority shareholder of and a non-executive director of The White Company. He is married to its founder Chrissie Rucker. They have four children and live in Oxfordshire.

Social and philanthropic background

Nick is a supporter of education with particular emphasis on encouraging young people to start their own business. He talks regularly in schools and colleges. He has funded eight startup businesses through Student Upstarts and has recently endowed the Wheeler Family Charitable Trust.
