I am thrilled and honoured to have become Signal's Chairman. Last Autumn I became an investor in the company and through that process met David Benigson, Signal's founder and CEO. Over the next few months we spoke frequently about the next phase for the company, which in turn lead to David inviting me to become Chairman. When I retired from being CEO of the media and information company Daily Mail and General Trust, I decided that I wanted to get back to what I had enjoyed most during my time there: creating and building up the business to business information division. To do that I wanted to invest in young companies and work as a Chairman with founder entrepreneurs to assist them in building innovative growth companies.
