Simon Jordan Early life
Simon Jordan was born on September 24, 1967 (age 55 years) in Thornton, United Kingdom. His father is Peter Jordan. Simon Jordan was an accomplished young footballer signing schoolboy forms with both Chelsea and Crystal Palace. He has described himself as being “good enough to be a professional, but mentally I wasn’t interested. You often get players who have bags of talent, but not the required application. I was one of them.” All this happened whilst he was at Purley High School for Boys in Old Coulsdon. His father Peter Jordan used to play for Crystal Palace F.C., although never appeared for the first team.
In the late 1980s or early 1990s, he was invited by a friend, James Wright, to join him in his business, Wright Connections, selling mobile phones via adverts placed in Loot and Exchange and Mart. Jordan and Wright rented an office from Delta 5, another mobile phone dealer, and the business lasted for a short time before changing its name to Corporate Cellular Ltd (CCL). This business was not considered to be a great success either and Jordan left in the early 1990s.
