THE GO RADIO BUSINESS SHOW WITH HUNTER & HAUGHEY …. AND COOK!

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.

So, whether you’re just starting out or are looking for some advice to help you take your business to the next level, enter the Boardroom on the Go Radio Business Show with Hunter & Haughey.

On this week’s show, Tommy Cook, the founder and CEO of Calnex Solutions, joined Sir Tom Hunter & Lord Willie Haughey.

Fast forward to -29:50 to hear the conversation with Tommy.
