Sir Tom Farmer CBE 1996

Sir Tom FarmerSir Tom left school at 15 and swept the floor in a tyre company. But he learned quickly and his ambition and drive led him to set up Kwik-Fit, one of the world's largest tyres and exhaust groups.  He pioneered a fresh kind of service for the motorist and his business was eventually bought out by the Ford Motor Group for close of £1 billion.

Sir Tom supports numerous charitable organisations, including a long-standing commitment to the Roman Catholic Church in Scotland.

He remains a mentor to many entrepreneurs and an inspiration to many young people in Scotland today.
