The Press and Journal (North-East) - - BUSINESS -

Jim Milne, se­rial entrepreneur and founder and chair­man of Bal­moral Group, has made and lost for­tunes.

The 77-year-old’s ca­reer spans five decades and be­gan in a mush­room shed.

A crum­bling Nige­rian mar­ket forced him to put one of his early busi­nesses, Aber­glen, into re­ceiver­ship.

But his abil­ity to rein­vent even­tu­ally saw him po­si­tion Bal­moral Group as a ma­jor in­ter­na­tional force, and ear­lier this year it was named the fastest­grow­ing com­pany in Scot­land.
