Alastair McIntyre was born in Glasgow in 1951 and spent much of his childhood in Iran, Kuwait, and Malta. After graduating from the Dollar Academy in Scotland, he trained to become an accountant. Alastair then had a varied career in management, sales, and insurance. Returning to Scotland, Alastair quickly got a District Sales Manager position with Carnation Foods.
