John GriffinChairman

John Griffin founded Addison Lee in 1975 with just one car and sold the company to The Carlyle Group for £360 million in April 2013.

He set up The John Griffin Foundation in 2014 as a focus for his growing charitable and philanthropic activities. The Foundation has committed £15 million to building an extension to the Northwick Park Institute for Medical Research in north London, creating one of the UK’s leading units engaged in pre-clinical research and surgical training and leading the way in regenerative medicine, specifically around the development of natural tissue scaffolds to replace surgically removed or traumatised tissues.
