Ruari grew up on the Isle of Mull in Scotland, where he setup his first business selling and servicing PC's on the Island at 16. He followed a career in sales and at the age of 25 he found himself in London as a commodities broker. He quickly established himself as a success and 10 years on he setup and manages one of the leading Jet Fuel desks. 18 months ago after a few failed attempts Ruari quit drinking and it fundamentally changed his life. Together with a colleague they decided to create something to change the peer pressure around giving up drinking.
