Alex set up Ten in 1998 as the first lifestyle and home management service in the world. He has established it as the leading example of a scalable, profitable, personalised service business, inventing the term and service ‘lifestyle management'.
He set up his first business when he was 13 and has established several others since then, including two at Oxford University while studying Politics, Philosophy and Economics.
He worked as a cowhand in Brazil at the age of 18 (a disaster) and a curtain cloth salesman in a Walthamstow market at the age of 14. His corporate experience before setting up Ten derives from many years working across brands, departments and geographies at Procter & Gamble, the iconic ‘big corporate'.
Alex is a celebrated speaker on issues ranging from all types of service businesses to public sector reform and from different and changing global cultures to innovation in business.
Number of staff: 350 spread across our offices in London, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Singapore, Mexico City, Shanghai, New York, Miami and San Francisco.
Languages spoken: 20 by two or more staff, 22 in total at the last count. We have dedicated English, Russian, Mandarin, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and Turkish speaking teams, among others.
Number of members: 2 million eligible members – we classify as people who are, at this moment in time, able to fully access our service.
Commission structure: We aim to access everything we do quicker, better and cheaper than our members can do themselves. This means that we don’t add mark-ups onto tickets, flights, cars and services (or anything else for that matter).
Membership referral: More than 95% of our members come directly from referrals from existing members.
