University of Edingburg Graduate Benjamin Benton is the 26 year old entrepreneur behind Huxley clothing, after leaving university in 2007, Benjamin secured a job working for a hedge fund in London.
He said “It was a choice between working long hours analysing spreadsheets and data in order to make other people rich and successful, or working longer hours, on my own, to get my business off the ground”. Huxley clothing was born in February 2009 with investments from friends and family.
He then added that he had the opportunity to either go with the opportunity to create a business from nothing that will one day hopefully be a successful and internationally renowned brand or working in his 9-5 job, there really was no competition in my mind for which route I should take.
Although you could argue his method in choosing the name for his business after he named his company “Huxley” after his friend’s dog, but you can’t deny his passion, dedication and commitment in turning his business into a successful one.
I do really love the look of the jumpers, very ummm...Nice, Colourful, Now I really feel like getting one.
