About The Englishman and Detroit
"As the recession slowly unfolded, Detroit's small business ecosystem had few real solutions. Randal Charlton was an advocate who pushed me to think bigger, to expand my relationships, and to embrace endless possibilities for renewal. During the worst of times, he was an assuring presence." -Carla Walker-Miller, Founder and CEO, Walker-Miller Energy Services
The Englishman and Detroit is ultimately a positive story about cultural and economic change in Detroit. In it, long time journalist John Gallagher tells the story of the emergence of a new entrepreneurial culture in Detroit. The Englishman of the title is Randal Charlton, the remarkable Brit who came here in 2000 to create the Asterand bio-medical startup and then ran TechTown as director from 2008-2011 and who of course recently wrote his own book, The Wicked Pilgrim.
JOHN GALLAGHER is a veteran journalist and author whose 2010 book Reimagining Detroit: Opportunities for Redefining an American City was named by the Huffington Post among the best social and political books of the year. Born in New York City, he attended DePaul University in Chicago and Columbia University in New York. Joining the Detroit Free Press in 1987 as the paper's urban affairs and economic development writer, John became a leading interpreter of the saga of post-industrial cities and their recovery efforts. He retired from the Free Press at the end of 2019 but continues to write and speak about a range of issues including labor, economics, architecture, urban planning, and media.
