About Clif­ford Ross

Finweek English Edition - - On The Money -

Hob­bies: Travel, photography, bird­ing and hik­ing. I climbed Kil­i­man­jaro with friends in 1996, and have oth­ers to climb on my bucket list.

Favourite hol­i­day des­ti­na­tions: Water­berg and Her­manus. I also en­joyed the Serengeti greatly! Dur­ing our re­cent visit there I got to un­der­stand why the lion is the king of the jun­gle. It’s no ex­ag­ger­a­tion. What book are you cur­rently read­ing? What mu­sic are you lis­ten­ing to? Jef­fery Deaver’s The Burial Hour. Mu­si­cally, I en­joy any­thing by Katie Melua.

Main­tain­ing fam­ily/work bal­ance: Fam­ily is very im­por­tant to me. When I’m home, I switch off. Prob­lems are es­ca­lated to me only if no­body else can solve them. That’s sel­dom. I rarely miss din­ner with my fam­ily (wife, two daugh­ters and a son). When I’m at work I give my all, and usu­ally start at 6AM and fin­ish at 7PM. What al­ter­na­tive ca­reer would you have

pur­sued in­stead of hospitality? I would be a game

ranger or pho­tog­ra­pher.

Words to live by: Life is too short to sweat the small things.
