The TEN Interview: Philip Salter chats to Share Radio’s Gavin Oldham


Launching a radio station may not be an obvious choice among most entrepreneurs – but Gavin Oldham isn’t like most entrepreneurs.

As he tells TEN’s Philip Salter, Oldham has recently sold close to 11 million shares in Share plc – the retail stockbroking business he founded a quarter of a century ago – to raise finance for his radio station. He previously founded the Share Centre back in 1991, which provides investment and trading services for c. 250,000 personal investors, company employees and shareholders generally. And in 2005, Oldham established The Share Foundation, which offers a Junior ISA scheme for children and young people in care.
