Ian Wright

Corporate relations director Diageo

Ian Wright, the corporate relations director of Diageo, won a scholarship to study at Cambridge. He worked as a fork-lift truck driver to help subsidise his scholarship and between 1980 and 1981 he was president of the Cambridge Student Union. Upon leaving university, Wright worked as a political organiser for the SDP before moving into PR. He has been active in third-party politics since the 1970s and has worked as an adviser to a number of politicians such as Nick Clegg and Menzies Campbell. For Wright, it was “bad luck” that led him to his career. “I had always wanted to be a journalist but business fascinated me. I am fortunate that I have been able to write for a living for 30 years without ever having to file.”
