Biography

A member of the Cadbury family who owned Britain’s largest chocolate making company, Adrian Cadbury was educated at Eton, where he learned to row, and Cambridge University. He was a member of the Cambridge eight that lost to Oxford in the Varsity Boat Race in the spring of 1952 and was chosen for the Great Britain eight that placed fourth in Helsinki. Cadbury’s brief rowing career ended after the Olympics when he joined the family business.

He served as Chairman of Cadbury Ltd and its post-merger successor Cadbury-Schweppes between 1965 and 1989, was a Director of the Bank of England for a quarter of a century and was a board member of IBM between 1975 and 1994.

Sir Adrian, who is a leading authority on business ethics and corporate governance, was knighted by Queen Elizabeth in 1977.
