Tweedie Brown CBE

Tweedie Brown CBE has been involved in various aspects of business since he left the Army in 2004 as a Brigadier General. He saw service mainly in Europe at the height of the Cold War and was Deputy Chief of Staff British Sector Berlin during the Fall of the Wall. Towards the end of his military career his appointments included CEO of Defence Postal and Courier Services, Commander of the Defence Logistics Training Group and Chief of Staff to the Adjutant General. He was a Director at the Army Benevolent Fund for a year and was an advisor to Ministers on Executive Agencies and quality initiatives in Government.

He has a broad portfolio of interests and is a passionate supporter of new business initiatives. This led him to become Life President of The League of Angels, a start-up investment organisation and a Board Member of East London Ventures, a business accelerator geared towards technology start-ups. He has had an abiding interest in property-related matters since his appointment as MD of the Property Search Group in 2004. He has kept this interest going as Chairman of the Guild of Letting and Management, Chairman of Exemplar Custom Build and Chairman of Virtual Power Supplies. His charitable interests are focused on housing and business. He is a Trustee of Housing Heroes and WandAid charities: the former catering to the housing needs of ex-members of HM Forces and the latter providing business solutions to forgotten communities at the frontline of humanitarian aid.

He works within the Caridon Group to secure financial and development opportunities that reinforce its winning formula. He is especially proud of Caridon’s successful admixture of exemplary social purpose and sound business principles.

He was awarded an OBE in 1993 and a CBE in 2003.
