Lyons, 49, is quietly building a US operation that offers money-saving lighting solutions to clients such as BP, Ferrari, Ford and Shell. Now based in the Bahamas after selling his Hampstead home for £43m, this consummate dealmaker made his fortune from London property. Matterhorn Capital and his other companies have undertaken transactions worth about £2bn in the UK, Europe and America, including the sale with his partners of half of Earls Court and Olympia in a deal that valued it at £380m, with the other 50% being sold later.
