Andrew Saunders - Deputy Editor

Saunders has interviewed just about everyone who is anyone for MT, from entrepreneurs including Richard Branson, Paul Drayson and James Dyson to captains of industry like Unilever's Paul Polman and the 'sleep is for wimps' former CEO of Thomas Cook Harriet Green.

Figuring out exactly how they all work, what makes their founders, leaders and employees tick, is what gets him out of bed in the morning.
