Anthony Pidgley, CBE

Founder and chairman Berkeley Group

Founder and chairman of the Berkeley Group Tony Pidgley is recognised as being one of the most influential people in property. Pidgley was born to a single mother and later adopted from Barnardos by four travellers. His early years were spent living in a disused railway carriage, and he developed his business acumen cutting trees and selling logs. When he left school at 15, Pidgley could barely read or write. In 1976, he co-founded the Berkeley Group with Jim Farrer. Today, the company is one of the most prominent developers of impressive new homes.
