Gordon Black

Gordon joined Peter Black in 1965 and became Chairman in 1977. Peter Black Holdings was a major supplier of footwear, toiletries, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and logistics to the UK’s leading retailers, with annual sales of £300 million and around 3,000 employees. It was a plc for 25 years and was then taken private in 2000. The remaining companies were sold to a Hong Kong based global trading company in 2007. 

Gordon now runs Black Family investments with his brother Thomas. They were founder investors in High Street TV (Nutribullet) which was subsequently sold to a Venture Capitalist. Gordon was awarded a CBE in 2005 for services to business and charity.
