Three things you didn’t know about...

Gabriella Griffith
The founder and chief executive of Peregrine Communications Anthony Payne

1 Anthony was born and grew up in Nairobi before moving to Chicago in mid-winter aged 13. The snow was a bit of a shock, as was going from having no TV to over 55 channels.

2 He has held a pilot licence since he was 23. Three weeks after he got it, he flew his then boss, Christopher Joll of Charles Barker City, to Paris for a conference during a French air traffic strike. “I was terrified,” he said.

3 He lives in Camden but has a second home in Ibiza. He spends as much time as he can there including each Christmas, soaking up the more temperate weather.
