Man with the Hook

NZ-born Sam Chisholm, the man who spent more time in the boxing ring than class room at King’s College, who then went on to become deal maker and right hand man for both Kerry Packer and Rupert Murdoch, is profiled in SMH’s Good Weekend.

Chisholm: “Loyalty is important … once you’ve sold your principles you’ve got nothing left”.
