Founded: 2000 Staff: 170 Turnover: £90 million Business idol: Muhammad Ali and Trevor Brooking - "They were my two idols growing up and no one in the business world has lived up to them" CLIVE Lucking's career can be charted through his cars — a Ford Fiesta, a Porsche and a "convertible sports car". Lucking, chief executive and founder of office interiors firm Fourfront Group, doesn't want to talk about the last of those, which he currently drives. "We have all these environmental accreditations and it sounds so bad", he says with a rueful smile.
