|Leader - David Cameron
The Old Etonian only entered Parliament in 2001 but his polished performances in the leadership campaign paved the way for victory over David Davis by a margin of more than two-to-one.
Before becoming leader he was Tory campaign co-ordinator in the 2005 general election and shadow education secretary.
He was special adviser to Home Secretary Michael Howard and Chancellor Norman Lamont in the 1990s.
But he also spent seven years in business as a communications director for Carlton.
