Brent was educated at Eton and holds a MA in French and German literature from Oxford. After building revenues more successfully than his peers, he was hailed as a survivor of the dot-com crash, and remained as CEO of Lastminute.com Ltd. through 2005, when the company was sold to Sabre for £577m. Brent is the co-founder of the influential FoundersForum, a network of tech entrepreneurs operating all over the world, and of firstminute capital, a European seed fund. As an angel investor, he has backed a number of startups including moveme.com (house moving) and viagogo (tickets).

Brent's initial vision remains unchanged - to delight customers with great value, inspiration and solutions when they are going away, going out or staying in. He will lead the way for countless E-businesses due to his first-hand knowledge on what gives a company the competitive edge to survive, especially in daily changing sectors such as E-commerce.
