Boris calls on Carphone man for Olympics job

London mayor nominates accountant and Carphone founder to be his voice on Olympics committee

David Ross, the chartered accountant who joined Charles Dunstone in founding
Carphone Warehouse, is to be the eyes and ears of London mayor Boris Johnson on
the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games.

Ross has been tasked by Johnson to ensure that both the Olympics and
Paraolympic games in 2012 ‘leave a lasting legacy.’

Johnson said: ‘I promised Londoners I would ensure that the investment we are
making in the 2012 Games offer the best value for money and David is just the
man for the job. He is one of Britain’s leading entrepreneurs and brings years
of business experience to the role. Having co-founded one of our most well known
household names and turned it into a huge success, his skills will be vital in
helping to deliver the legacy on which the success of the London Games will be
judged.’
