LEX INTERVEW: Jon Walden's final Q&A

Date: 31 March 2009

Jon Walden

In his last interview as Lex managing director, Jon Walden talks to BusinessCar about his final week in the office and his plans for the future

BusinessCar: What are you planning to do next?

Jon Walden: I'm planning to expand my non-exec director roles. I already work with Morgan Sindall, a construction company. I've been with them for seven years and have been working with Randgold Resources, a gold mining firm, since October.

I'd like to do more like that, but may do some consultancy work in automotive.

BC: Will you come back to the automotive sector full time?

JW: No. But I would consider things in the car market - that's where my experience is - if they are interesting.

If you stay in one area and don't look outside then you can get introverted. An external perspective helps ground you.

BC: What will you miss most about Lex?

JW: I loved working for Lex, the people have been fantastic. Even in current times people are upbeat and energetic and I draw a lot of strength from that.

BC: What leaving presents did you get?

JW: They gave me a few presents. There was a massive autograph book that people had signed - it took me over an hour to read it.

I got a poster of yours truly from a campaign we'd run within the business and a plaque which read: From Lex, presented to Jon Walden, industry grandee and the personification of Lex values.
