Peter Hill-Wood came from a cricketing background - his father, three uncles and grandfather all played first-class cricket for Derbyshire CCC - and on leaving Eton he joined the Coldstream Guards and from there entered the banking industry, eventually rising to become a vice-chairman of Hambros Bank. In 1982 he became chairman of Arsenal, following his father, Denis Hill-Wood (1962-1982), and his grandfather, Samuel Hill-Wood (1929-1936 and 1946-1949).
