Cypriot-born Dragons’ Den star Theo Paphitis built an empire valued at hundreds of millions of pounds in retail. His personalised number plate is dedicated to one of his most successful companies: the stationary retailer Ryman.
RY M4N is a great plate – it’s immediately easy to understand, iconic and something that perfectly suits Theo’s personality. It’s also easy to spot – Mr Paphitis has it fixed to his chrome plated Maybach.
