The accidental investor

Print This Post A A A

Meet AC-2, a talented young individual who started at Switzer with a lot of knowledge about film, video and photography and an attitude of team work and positivity. AC-2 had been employed by a multinational company but was looking for a change. They say it takes a genius to spot talent and I saw the talent in AC-2 from the get go – so read what you want into that!

We hired AC-2 on attitude and for that he got a big tick. As for knowledge about finance, much to his Dad’s lament, there just wasn’t much there – though he’s the rule not the exception. His job was behind the camera not in front like Peter Switzer so we didn’t see that as a problem.

At the interview he did intimate that he had a willingness to learn, and that’s exactly what he has done.
