WHO IS CALLUM?
Thanks for looking me up. My name is Callum McCormick and I part-own BarclayJames – and a small engineering businesss called DX Commander.
Previously, I owned an IT Recruitment company, BarclayAnderson.com which peaked at over $10M turnover before the recession which caught up with us in 2009. We shut that in 2019.
I have previously been a Group Scout Leader for a 300 children Scout Group and was previously the Chairman of our local Village Hall. Because of these two appointments, I am very well known in our local community. I can’t stop being recognised due to my very outlandish and sometimes crazy hairstyle, currently a modest, blonde Mohican. I have since resigned all voluntary appointments. Life’s too short.
I have a love of rock drumming and used to be a keen motorcyclist with a 2010 FatBoy custom with extra-wide “Buffalo” ape hangers and super fat rear tyre.
I also played in two Harley Bands, The Fat Boys and the Fat Bastards (sometimes known as “Les Bastardos Grande“. I am honoured to have some amazing and extremely diverse friends within motorcycle fraternity – and proud of it. But “retired” now.
Finally the family’s Narrowboat. This was the highlight of my life but we sold the boat a couple of years ago to pay for the recession. We do have great memories of taking the boat from Birmingham to London and then back up the Thames to Oxford; our maiden voyage and a trip of around 250 locks which took 4 weeks of solid boating. A real pleasure and apparently we’re one of the few families to ever have completed this trip. In all, we have calculated that we traversed through 1,000 locks as a family over three summers. Quite a set of adventures.
It’s a pleasure being your friend. Thank for the ride.
