The Go Radio Business Show with Hunter & Haughey
WITH CLARKE ePOS (UK) LTD
As two of Scotland’s most inspirational leaders, Sir Tom Hunter and Lord Willie Haughey look to inspire, inform and entertain with insight, advice and guidance!
Sir Tom’s first business quite literally started from the back of a van and grew to become Europe’s largest independent sports retailer, Sports Division. He sold the business in 1998 for £ 290m going on to establish his private equity business, West Coast Capital (“WCC”) and philanthropy, The Hunter Foundation (“THF”)
Lord Haughey started City Refrigeration in 1985 with 4 employees and a turnover of £100k, by the mid 1990s, City transformed itself from a refrigeration company into one of the largest privately-owned Integrated Facilities Management companies in the world. It has taken the company 34 years to get to a £1bn turnover, with a realistic chance it will be at £2bn within the next 3 years.
Every Sunday, Sir Tom Hunter and Lord Willie Haughey will be joined by Donald Martin, Editor of The Herald and Herald on Sunday who will Chair the discussion.
