Speaker: Gordon Black ex CEO of Peter Black plc

When Gordon joined Peter Black Limited in 1965, the company was already a supplier of bags and shoes to Marks & Spencer and Boots and turned over approx £2m. During the following few years Gordon and his brother Thomas expanded the range of products they supplied to M&S to include leisure wear, toiletries, cosmetics and homeware and by the time the company floated on the stock exchange in 1972 sales had reached £4.7m (£94m in today's money). The company was taken private on 2000 and sold in 2007 to a Chinese purchaser by which time turnover had reached £300m (£600m in today's money) and had several thousand employees.

Since the sale Gordon has invested in variety of ventures including the fast growing High Street TV Limited and written a book 'From Bags to Blenders-The Journey of a Yorkshire Businessman'
