“ Selling in the Fast Lane – From Xerox to Formula 1”
Brian began his career as a Xerox salesman and it was the sales skills that he learned with this highly regarded company that would eventually enable him to succeed at the very top level of international motorsport. His passion for motorsport then came to the fore and he embarked on a new career, initially as a championship winning professional race driver. It wasn’t long, however, before he built an enviable reputation for securing substantial corporate sponsorship and this led him to a career in Formula 1, not as a driver, but as the Marketing Director of two F1 teams, Benetton and Lola Scuderia Ferrari.
