Profile

John Griffin

Description

John Griffin has served as chairman of Finito since its launch in 2016, and is a distinguished businessman and philanthropist. Griffin left school with no qualifications after contracting TB just before sitting his O-levels. He became a minicab driver and founded Addison Lee in 1975 with just one car. Nearly 40 years later he sold the company to The Carlyle Group for £350 million.

Griffin believes passionately in helping young people develop. Finito supports first-time job hunters transitioning from education into employment, with one-to-one mentoring, coaching and guidance to those starting out on the career ladder, into roles that suit their skills and ambitions.
