Love & Pride in a 150 Year Legacy with ACME Whistles’ Simon Topman & Ben McFarlane #22
Play • 1 hr 5 min

Regardless of your profession, industry or area of expertise, to love what you do and work on your passion is a trait that manifests itself within your product.

As our first guests to have been passed the baton from another family, ACME Whistles’ Simon Topman & Ben McFarlane exhibit this pride in the history started by Joseph Hudson over 150 years ago.

Simon & Ben are such advocates for the sense of succession and long-term success over financial gain, and their commitment to continuing the legacy is equal parts admirable, motivational and endearingly touching.

This episode covers:

  • The inspiration for inventing the first whistle of the 460m that ACME have sold to date
  • Nurturing a sense of pride, immersion and curation for your family business rather than that of ownership
  • B2B and B2C markets and the new, novel opportunities that each has presented throughout their 150 year history
  • The unique sense of fortune to be a part of a family firm built on love and passion
