Case Study - Terry & Adrian Horne

Terry & Adrian HorneTerry and Adrian Horne have taken the father and son relationship to the next level by launching a Premier Sport franchise together in the Shepton Mallet territory in Somerset.

They have always had the desire to move to the West Country from their home near Milton Keynes and the Premier Sport franchise was the perfect opportunity for them to embark on a new adventure together. 

Terry enjoyed a long and successful career with General Motors (GM). From starting as an apprentice over 40 years ago, he gained a wealth of commercial business experience with the multimillion pound worldwide blue-chip company. He’s also enjoyed a variety of senior management roles across Europe within the after sales, marketing and finance departments of GM.

Terry’s son Adrian has been employed as a Premier Sport activity professional within the Milton Keynes franchise for the last year. This practical experience gained by working in a successful franchise confirmed to Adrian that his future was in inspiring children through sport and physical activity.

Adrian is a true sports fanatic and swam at national level when he was living in Germany. Not only that, he’s also a successful athlete having also competed nationally in the 200m sprint.

Adrian said: “I have a deep passion for sport and feel that as an activity professional working for Premier Sport, I have many of the tools and experience to now run my own sports coachng business.

Although young, I feel like this is an advantage as I am eager to learn and have big ambitions when it comes to educating children about sport and physical activity in primary schools.”

It became apparent whilst undertaking their business planning and due diligence that the combination of Terry’s vast commercial business experience together with Adrian’s passion for delivering outstanding sports coaching has the attributes and potential for a winning team.

Business organisations, new contacts and old friends will all be there, alongside a healthy dose of inspiration, knowhow and experience.
