Cullen, Bill

Bill Cullen was born in Dublin in 1942 and grew up in the inner city slums of Dublins Summerhill tenements. A street seller from the age of six, Bill left school at thirteen to make a living. In 1956 he got a job in a Dublin Ford car dealership and by 1964, as a twenty-two-year-old, he was appointed director general of the dealership. In 1986 he took over the troubled Renault car distribution franchise and turned it into a success. Bill Cullen is a director of the Irish Youth Foundation and in 1998 was a recipient of the Lord Mayors Award for his work with the disadvantaged young people of Dublin.
