About Bill Gammell

Scottish sportsman and industrialist, Sir Bill Gammell has a net worth of £30 million as of May 2012, according to the Sunday Times Rich List. Gammell’s best moment in a brief international rugby career came while playing for Scotland against Japan in 1977. The tall winger scored four tries in the Scots’ 74-9 victory in Tokyo. His rugby career was ended by injury after he had won just five caps. Educated at Edinburgh’s Fettes College, where he was a friend of the young Tony Blair, using venture capital Gammell later set up Edinburgh-based Cairn Energy in 1981 as a tiny oil exploration company. After it floated on the stock market in 1988, it expanded internationally. He stepped down as chief executive in 2011 and is now the company’s chairman. Gammell’s remaining stake is worth more than £11m and he has outside interests, including a 17% stake in the fast-growing Genius bread operation that he now chairs.
