ID: 259697
Organization: PIL
Country of meeting: GBR in the year 1974

Was an Italian-born British entrepreneur who built a global empire of restaurants and hotels that collapsed again during his lifetime and became a member of the House of Lords as Life Peer in 1982 under the Life Peerages Act of 1958.
He was thus one of the one-generation entrepreneurs who failed to lay a solid foundation for safeguarding the family heritage. He became particularly known for the fight for the Savoy Hotel in London, the expansion of the Happy Eater and Little Chef restaurant chains and his support for Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the 1980s.,_Baron_Forte
