Anthony Salmon


A member of the Salmon and Gluckstein family, founders of J. Lyons & Co, Anthony Salmon was assigned Managing Director of LEO Computers Limited on its foundation in 1954 and became a main board Director of the parent company in 1955. 
He played an active role in promoting LEO sales using his extensive business contacts. He ceased active involvement after the merger of LEO with English Electric in 1963, though nominally he remained Vice-Chair of merged company.
A short biographical sketch can be found on page 208 of Peter Bird’s book LEO: the World’s First Business Computer.
