Brian is an ICAS Chartered Accountant and holds an Honorary Doctorate from Glasgow Caledonian University. Brian tells us about his childhood growing up on a council estate on the outskirts of Glasgow. He grew up with very little, but it was his drive and ambition to achieve more in life that got him to where he is today and believes others can achieve what they want to too. Brian also tells us about the Watches of Switzerland Foundation which launched a food bank support programme in 2020 in response to the pandemic and its ongoing work to support local communities through volunteering and fundraising.
