Biography

Nicholas Charles Tyrwhitt Wheeler OBE (born 20 January 1965 in Ludlow, Shropshire) is an English businessman. He attempted a number of different businesses, including a photography venture and a Christmas tree delivery service. In 1986 he established the Charles Tyrwhitt company and shirt brand, which he owns.

Wheeler grew up in Ludlow and was educated at the Dragon School in Oxford, Eton College, and the University of Bristol, where he studied geography. His first job was as a management consultant for Bain & Company. In November 1986, he set up Charles Tyrwhitt, now a well-known shirt brand in the United Kingdom. It has grown to be the UK’s largest mail-order shirt business, and also has several brick and mortar locations (as of October 2014, 17 in the United Kingdom, 7 in the United States, and one in France).

In 2008, he was a regional judge for the Entrepreneur Challenge in the UK.

Wheeler is married to Chrissie Rucker, founder of The White Company. They have four children; Tom, Ella, India and Bea. His sister, Susie Cummings, is founder and CEO of Nurole, the online head-hunting platform. In 2019, their collective wealth was estimated at £452 million by The Sunday Times Rich List. Together they live in Buckinghamshire and also own a chalet in Klosters, Switzerland named Haus Alpina.
