At the tender age of 15 Brian began working as a clerk for a dairy produce company, and rose through the ranks to become a managing director in 1974. After 32 years continuous employment he set up his own successful delicatessens business in Southampton. After 10 years of being his own boss, the economic situation at the time forced him to become an employee again. This time he entered the building trade working directly with customers buying building materials. Brian is now retired and continues to be an active member of a local bowls club and very much enjoys his involvement in all aspects of Simon Says.
