TOUKER Suleyman is a successful businessman and fashion investor who stars on the BBC’s Dragons’ Den – which has recently returned for another season.
But who is the man behind the money, what is his net worth, is he married and does he have children? Here is the lowdown…
Who is Touker Suleyman? What is his background?
Suleyman was born on August 4, 1953, in Famagusta. He was born into a Turkish-Cypriot family and later moved to England and attended school in Peckham, south London.
He is a multi-millionaire retail and fashion entrepreneur. In 2001 his company Low Profile Group bought famed shirtmaker Hawes & Curtis for just £1.
By 2014 the chain operated 30 branches in the UK and one in Germany. He is now working on bringing the store to the Gulf.
In 2008 he also purchased the fashion label Ghost and has also been investing in start-up companies including Bikesoup.
In 2015, Touker was asked to join the investors’ panel on Dragons’ Den and he has been a fixture on the show ever since.
He has two children but is not currently married.

In 2015 The Sunday Times Rich List estimated Touker as having a fortune worth £150million.
He has used part of his wealth to build what has been described as a “James Bond-style” house in south London.
The house is said to be so impressive he regularly rents it out to A-list celebs – including David and Victoria Beckham.
What is Dragons’ Den and when is it on?
Dragon’s Den is back for it’s final episode tonight on BBC Two at 9pm.
Budding entrepreneurs get three minutes to pitch their business ideas to five multimillionaires who are willing to invest their own cash to kick-start the businesses.
After each pitch, the Dragons have the opportunity to ask questions about the venture.
The entrepreneurs don’t always have to answer, but of course, what they choose not to address could very well affect the outcome.
A Dragon who, having heard the pitch, does not wish to invest, must declare themselves “out”, implying that they leave the discussion.
The line up this year includes two new Dragons.
Supplement supremo Tej Lalvani and cashpoint queen Jenny Campbell – will be brandishing their chequebooks alongside serial investor Deborah Meaden, technology titan Peter Jones and fashion retail tycoon Touker.
