Five brilliant failures from the creator of Baileys

About David

A cricket enthusiast, here is David alongside West Indies hero, Joel Garner

David Gluckman was born in Port Elizabeth, South Africa on 1 November 1938, the day Sea Biscuit and War Admiral fought out the race of the century at Pimlico Park, Baltimore. Educated in Johannesburg, he joined a local advertising agency after university and soon fell in love with the business.

He made the pilgrimage to London in 1961 and worked as an account executive on Procter & Gamble, Kerrygold, Lyons teas and several Unilever accounts. Always a frustrated copywriter, he escaped into product development in 1969, met a man from IDV and his life changed forever. He lives in London with his partner, Barbara Bryant, has one daughter, Romany Turner, and a grandson, Marlo.
