In the money

Some folks prefer anonymity rather than being included in those 'rich-list' tables that the papers are constantly publishing. That does not apply to Tony Pidgley, head of housing developer the Berkeley Group, who I note is speaking at the RIBA conference at Interbuild in June.

According to a profile in the Sunday Express, Pidgley is 'adamant' that he is worth more than the £48 million he was recently credited with having.

Still, with a salary of only £600,000pa, things must be quite tough for Pidgley. But not quite as tough as they were for his son, Tony Pidgley Jnr, who left the Berkeley Group last year to start his own company. He tells the Sunday Express: 'At the end of the day, people will work the hours demanded if they feel rewarded, and I didn't on a £275,000pa salary.' Don't you just know how he feels.
