Fry appointed UK Business Ambassador

British Prime Minister David Cameron invites Nick Fry to become a UK Business Ambassador.

Mercedes Grand Prix CEO Nick Fry has been appointed one of the UK government's new Business Ambassadors. Fry will now be charged with briefing ministers and UKTI (UK Trade & Investment), on Britain's motorsport industry.

“It is with great pleasure that I recently accepted the role of Business Ambassador,” Fry said. “The motorsport industry in the UK plays a key role in our economy; in addition to promoting trade and investment for the UK at home and abroad, I hope to be able to represent our industry and bring benefits to all concerned.”

Fry was appointed alongside 32 other Business Ambassadors, including Sir Anthony Bamford of JCB, Chris Patten, Chancellor of Oxford University, Hermann Hauser of Amadeus Partners, Sir John Bond of Vodafone, Dick Oliver of BAE and Lord Digby Jones of HSBC/Triumph.

“I am delighted Nick has accepted this role as a Business Ambassador, as it will help members engage directly with UKTI at a vital time, while they review their relationships with UK industries and trade associations, in particular,” said Chris Aylett, CEO of the Motorsport Industry Association.

“I call on all members to let me know of any issues which we should put to Nick Fry, concerning UKTI, international trade, inward investment priorities and interests. I know Nick will do his very best for the entire UK motorsport industry while holding this prestigious role, an appointment which he richly deserves,” Aylett summed-up.

So the British Govt Licenses the Con Artist to formally con Businesses and Investors :-O I wonder who will the next mark of the "real hustler"? The Whole Honda-Brawn-Merc Journey is text book lesson of how executives con organizations into losses all the while making personal fortunes. One thing for sure this guy surely has persuasion skills, to think of Tokyo bosses following his advice in running Honda and Super Aguri teams. The team going bust by end of 2008, but Fry & Brawn convincing Tokyo bosses to pump in money for 2009 season. The team “Suddenly” turning corner winning 2009 championship, with Mosley backing the illegal DD and then Fry/Brawn Duo selling off the team to Mercedes and making zillions of Dollars everything sounds like an elaborate Hustle. I wonder how much Mosley made when he blessed the DD, which was lynch pin for Fry/Brawn Hustle to work out.... Maybe we will see new variation of Colin Chapman's Delorean adventure in times to come
