Giles is the founder and Chairman of the Cadman Capital Group, and a BVI licensed investment manager who advises the Group on alternative assets and venture capital for sustainable projects. Giles‘ career was inspired at an early age by his parents’ entrepreneurial spirit, love of business and discipline, and he quickly learned and applied their hardworking approach with success in marketing, IT, imports and offshore trading structures. Giles also learned about wine investment, primarily through his love of wine and business interests, and consulted for companies wishing to enter the sector before setting up his own Group in 2000. The Cadman Capital Group, which today comprises 28 companies in five countries, operates in trade, retail, leisure, property and investment markets. The Group has an aggressive growth strategy and aims to add a new business every year to its portfolio.
