Gerald Ratner was the chief executive of the British jewellery chain Ratners Jewellery, which he built into the world's largest jewellery retailer business. At its peak it consisted of 2500 shops, making £125m with a turnover of nearly £2 billion.
After disastrously criticising the brand during a speech given at the Institute of Directors in 1991, the company suffered huge financial losses, and was renamed Signet Group in 1993. Gerald went on to be declared bankrupt.
However, Gerald bounced back. He started a local gym and sold the business in 2001 for £3.9 million. He then went on to relaunch his career in the jewellery sector with GeraldOnline.com in 2004, which is now a highly successful business.
Gerald has appeared on the Apprentice as part of a Comic Relief special and is an excellent example of how entrepreneurs can recover from even the most catastrophic events.
