Mr. Tesco: The Legacy of Terry Leahy
As Sir Terry Leahy leaves Tesco after being its CEO for thirteen years, he gives a rare and revealing interview to The Telegraph’s Damian Reece, who travels with him back to his home city of Liverpool. He discovers how the man who grew up on a council estate ended up running a global business. Under Sir Terry’s leadership Tesco has become the third largest retailer in the world and Britain’s biggest private sector employer. Profits for the company, which started life as a ‘pile it high sell it cheap’ supermarket, hit £1.6 bn last year. In this in depth portrait, he talks about his early influences, crucial turning points for the company and what motivates him.
