Alan Halsall

Qualified as a lawyer but soon left that profession to take over control of the family Toy Company where he stayed until 2006, when the company was sold to the management by which time it had achieved a turnover of £80m. In 2002 he purchased out of Administration Silver Cross, the famous pram company, and was Chairman and sole shareholder from 2006 until it was sold in 2015. Alan during that time built Silver Cross into a quality British brand with a turnover in excess of £20m, supplying nursery products in over 50 countries worldwide and is the only pram manufacturer left in the UK.
