Alan George
“I’m a massive sports fan and always wanted to work in sport. I was able to bring a lot of sports business knowledge to the firm and, combined with my father’s background of running a company, the two of us have knitted together really well. I’d always harboured ambitions of living in Cornwall and there are definitely opportunities – I’d say business studies is a good grounding for people moving forward.”
