Token (1974)

Lloyd's underwriter, who later became chairman of an affiliated company, the Alexander Howden Group until 1982. However, Ken was caught up in a scandal in the late 1980's and it affected his health, as he died a few years later. Grob was accused of 16 charges of theft, totalling over $11 million, four charges of false accounting and handling stolen goods and three of publishing false statements due to links to a company in Panama, but was completely cleared of all charges. However it overshadowed a brilliant career as an underwriter at Lloyd's, where he achieved immense success, but also his involvement in the Token team; albeit a silent partner, he helped Ron Dennis grow his Rondel team and helped with the Formula 1 career of Tom Pryce alongside friend and business partner Tony Vlassopulos.
