Wow! This is a blast form the past.
This was the first photograph taken on our first day of trading in June 1978. This is my father David, who risked his stable position within a large local motor dealership to start Clarkson of Glasgow with four used Transit vans. At that time I was eight years old.
Fast forward a whopping 38 years and that eight year old boy is now forty six years old and running the family business…and that’s me, Barry Clarkson! What I do here isn’t a job, it’s a way of life. I’ve been brought up in the business on a basis of mutual understanding, pride and passion. What I’ve learned in all these years you don’t learn at university, it’s called the school of life and learning. So it’s for these reasons that I’m so proud to fly the flag of being a fully independent family business and not a sprawling faceless multinational operation. Your business matters directly to me.
