"No Nonsense Innovation | David Gluckman | Inventor of Baileys

David Gluckman David Gluckman was born in Port Elizabeth, South Africa on 1st November 1938, the day that Sea Biscuit and War Admiral fought out the Race of the Century at Pimlico Park, Baltimore.

Educated in Johannesburg, he joined a local advertising agency after university and soon fell in love with business.

He made the pilgrimage to London in 1961 and worked as an account executive on the introduction of Kerrygold butter into the UK.

Always a frustrated creative, he escaped into brand development in 1969, met a man from a drinks company called IDV, and his life changed forever.

A lover of cricket, he considers his greatest achievement bowling the West Indian legend, Joel Garner, first ball in a pro-am 6-a-side tournament." [Taken from http://congregation.ie/friday-ashford-castle-eveni.html ]
