LONDON, UK (Top40 Charts/ XIX Entertainment)
Simon Fuller has been recognised for his vision and success with XIX Entertainment by being named as one of the ten greatest British entrepreneurs of all time. The list, which was published on the Daily Mail, was compiled by Harvey
Goldsmith, the renowned promoter of rock concerts, charity concerts, and television broadcasts for the Prince's Trust
and Teenage Cancer Trust.
Goldsmith has praised Fuller for his work in building XIX Entertainment. The extremely successful management business has looked after the interests of many high profile clients, including David
Beckham, Lewis Hamilton, Annie
Lennox, and The Spice Girls.
Fuller has also left his mark on popular culture, by establishing the Pop Idol franchise that is currently being sold in over 100 countries. Goldsmith believes that this is where Fuller has demonstrated his real entrepreneurial vision, as he is able to develop ideas that conform directly to the latest trends.
"His modus operandi is seeing opportunities, quietly grabbing them, staying under the radar, and delivering," Goldsmith wrote on The Daily Mail website. "In the process, he's built up an extraordinary business empire."
