Local Heroes

David Erdal

David Erdal studied Chinese at Oxford, then worked as a teacher in Mao's China. After gaining an MBA at Harvard, he returned to Scotland and led the family paper mill, Tullis Russell, into all-employee ownership. In 1989 he won the Scottish Business Achievement Award. After obtaining a PH.D. at St Andrews on the psychology of sharing, he went on to be MD of Baxi Partnership, which structures and funds all-employee buyouts of medium-sized companies

 David Erdal's Local Heroes: the Liberation of Loch Fyne Oysters is an engaging story packed with lessons for our times. It will change the way you think about business ownership and about people at work – though maybe not the way you feel about oysters (Amazon)
