What makes Tim Martin a Global Shaker?

Founder and Chairman of Wetherspoons pub chain, Tim bought his first pub in Muswell Hill in 1979. Standing at 6 ft 6 he is known as the “Giant” of the British pub industry.

He is also one of the most high profile business figures to back Brexit. And his campaigning has not let up since the vote. He says his pub chain of almost 1,000 outlets could stop selling drinks from other European countries if the EU keep up a “bullying” approach to negotiations.
