Purplebricks co-founder Kenny Bruce has revealed his new lifestyle after leaving the company in June, including a somewhat more relaxed approach to living.
The multi-millionaire, who is the younger of the two siblings, stayed on for several months longer than his brother Michael to run its customer service division in the UK before leaving on June 21st this year.
The 44-year-old reveals that he has thrown himself into gardening at his opulent home in Northern Ireland, celebrating with his father whenever the football team he supports, Larne FC, wins and taking his son to football matches.
Bruce has also said that he went on holiday to Crete last month with his family for two weeks without doing any work while he was away; clearly a first.
The more laid-back approach life comes despite his pledge to ‘not let the grass grow under his feet’ back in June and a heavy hint that he and his brother had another project under way.
This is on top of a ‘multi-million pound’ investment in Larne football club, which has been spent on redeveloping its Inver Park stadium and which is part of his promise to fans to ‘leave a legacy’ in the town.
Bruce says he wants his millions to help the club reach the Premier League, and told the BBC recently that he will ensure ‘whatever it takes financially’ to achieve that.
