28: The chief executive of Aston Martin on Bond, boats and Brexit

Oct 05, 2016, 05:00 AM

Aston Martin may be a byword for luxury, but it has a troubled past, after seven administrations (which, incidentally, is the number of James Bonds there have been).

With a Midlands twang and a background on the factory floor, chief executive Andy Palmer isn't what you'd expect from a luxury boss - but he may be just the tonic the business needs.

In this special edition of City A.M. Unregulated, recorded at the Ritz, he talks Brexit, Bond and boats - as well as explaining his hands-on leadership style and what gets him up in the morning.
