37 years ago John Lloyd and I arrived at a studio in Kensington, West London to start Lloyd Northover. 37 years later the business is still going. And so am I, except now I'm operating independently as Jim Northover Limited. I am no longer Chairman of Lloyd Northover but will continue to consult with the company, while taking up new opportunities as they arise. The picture shows the two of us taken during the first weeks of business. The optimism remains.
