I first met Nigel Ingram in 1988 when I was the director of marketing for Garrett Electronics. We were looking for a new distributor in the UK and scheduled a lengthy trip there to meet with the various candidates. I can’t remember exactly where Nigel was in the sequence but after meeting him I knew he and Regton, Ltd. were the perfect fit. It was a great choice in that he’s still Garrett’s UK distributor almost 30 years later (every once in a while I do get something right).
Now having said all this I have to warn you that Nigel has a unique way of putting his thoughts on paper (yeah I know, who the hell am I to criticize). I started adding periods, commas, etc. but finally said “the hell with it” …. so good luck, you are on your own.
If you are ever in the UK and in the Birmingham area be sure to stop in at Regton’s and say hi. You might also remind Nigel he’s owes me $20….
