James Murray Wells

Founder of Glasses Direct

James (he prefers Jamie) Murray Wells is the founder of the highly successful internet company Glasses Direct. He managed to break the big opticians' hold on the market and has investors queuing up to help blow it further apart. Manufacturers were initially reluctant to endanger their relationships with high street opticians, but eventually relented and Jamie started selling specs over the internet in September 2004. The company estimates it ships a pair every few minutes round the clock, and that it has saved the UK public in excess of 25 million pounds on their glasses.
