Munir Samji, founder of Blitz Communications on what his plans were just 6 weeks post exit.

Munir Samji, former owner, Blitz Communications

Munir, a qualified Chartered Accountant, had a 19-year career in advertising – ending up as Managing Director of Saatchi & Saatchi – before becoming involved in business turnarounds. Having already rescued seven businesses, Munir bought the eighth, Blitz Communications, and oversaw its rise to become one of the UK’s leading staging and audio-visual specialists. Blitz is the sole on-site supplier to the likes of ExCeL, Manchester Central and the NEC, and has supported such illustrious events as the Man Booker Prize ceremony, BBC Summer in the City and the Liverpool International Music Festival awards. Munir exited the business only late in 2014.
