SEND FOR LEVENE
Author: Peter Levene
Send for Levene, a fascinating autobiography covering the multifaceted career of Peter Levene (Lord Levene) – successful businessman turned senior civil servant and then commercial trouble shooter. Along the way he also had time to be Lord Mayor of London.
From his early days in establishing United Scientific Holdings PLC as a multi-million pound listed company to his sudden transformation into a senior civil servant as Chief of Defence Procurement at the invitation of Michael Heseltine the then Minister of Defence, followed by a move into investment banking and unexpected appointments to act as Prime Minister John Major’s Efficiency Advisor and then run the Docklands Light Railway before becoming Chairman and Chief Executive of the troubled Canary Wharf development, Peter’s career has uniquely straddled both the public and private sectors at the highest levels, invariably in troubled times.
