Hilary Lorraine Devey

Founder and CEO of Pall-EX

Hilary Lorraine Devey CBE is an English businesswoman, television personality and entrepreneur, best known for her two-year role on BBC Two programme Dragons' Den until she left to present the Channel 4 series The Intern. Devey grew up in Bolton, Lancashire and, as a seven-year-old child, witnessed the results of the bankruptcy of her father, who had owned a central heating company, when bailiffs removed furniture and household goods from the family home. Her father then earned a living managing pubs and hotels. She left school at the age of sixteen, served for a short while in the Women's Royal Air Force, in air traffic control and the supply accounts department, stationed at Royal Air Force Brize Norton. Devey later moved to London. After two failed marriages, Devey finally grabbed hold of that one idea that would make her a millionaire within three years. There was just one problem: none of the banks would back her. She had to sell her house to get the financial backing she needed. In true rags to riches style, she is not only CEO of freight distribution network Pall-EX, but even garnered TV spots on BBC’s Dragons’ Den and later Channel 4’s The Intern
