Sir John Madejski Joins Rare

Joining us in the Members Lounge this October is Sir John Madejski. Brought up in the Thames Valley, Sir John Madejski OBE, DL, DLitt, made his mark in business as founder of Thames Valley Trader which would grow to become the multinational brand known as Auto Trader. He is currently a Director of six different companies worldwide and, perhaps most prominently, he took over as Chairman of Reading Football Club in December 1990.

Away from football, Sir John is an extremely successful businessman and much-admired philanthropist. Chairman of Clearview Intelligence Group and he also owns a riverside restaurant in Goring-on-Thames and the five-star Royal Palm hotel in the Galapagos Islands.

Sir John will be giving a talk about his incredibly interesting life with all his different achievements for around half an hour where there will be some nibbles and cocktails to enjoy whilst listening. This will be followed by some Q & A’s.
