Sir Peter Rigby, 72, set up and runs a portfolio of privately owned businesses operating across Europe and the Middle East. Last year the group launched a new division, Rigby Capital, to help customers fund their future IT investments, and bought a stake in internet services provider Fluidata. The original IT services business SCC remains the Warwickshire group’s biggest division with multiple locations across Europe, and it recently announced plans for expansion into Vietnam. Previous acquisitions include Norwich airport and Exeter-based Capital Air Charter, which charters private jets and air ambulances.
