Sir Tom Farmer of Kwik-Fit puts car exhausts aside for charity walks and travelling. Most of his reading is airport books, he tells Rhymer Rigby.

To the casual onlooker, Sir Tom Farmer's lot looks a happy one. As chairman of the Edinburgh-based automotive repair chain Kwik-Fit which employs over 6,500 and is worth £696.5 million, it's an observation with which Farmer cheerfully agrees. 'I can rank myself as one of those people who can't believe how lucky they are,' he says. He is not boasting. In every area of his life - business, social and personal - Farmer seems a fortunate man. He says he really does wake up every morning thankful for the royal flush that fortune has dealt him.
