Former managing director of Plymouth Gin, Rolls is one of the co-founders of premium mixer brand Fever-Tree. Puzzled by the lack of quality mixers, Rolls launched the business in 2005 alongside Tim Warrilow (above left). Fever-Tree is now worth £3 billion.

Rolls sold £253.8m of shares since then and retains a 7% holding, valued at £86.1m.

The Fever-Tree founder announced he would retire from his role as non-executive deputy chairman last month.
