Non-executive Chairman - Appointed September 2009
As businessmen go, Grant Baker is probably at the more unconventional end of the spectrum. The co-founder of The Business Bakery has a number of successes under his belt, including the 42 Below vodka venture and Trilogy International, which recently sold to Chinese Citic Group, amongst a number of other ventures he has been involved in.
With a 7.02% shareholding, Grant is long term committed investor in Turners Automotive Group. As an avid collector of specialist vehicles and motor racing enthusiast, both as a competitor and as a backer of young up and coming drivers, he is passionate about the strong Turners brand and its focus on cars. He has wide experience at a senior level in both public and private New Zealand companies and has been Chairman of Turners Automotive Group since September 2009.
