Douglas Westcott is a pseudonym for a well-known Bath businessman. The son of a Polish immigrant who fled to England after the First World War, Westcott was orphaned at 17, left school and started as a messenger boy for a property agency in London. His entire working life has been spent in the world of commercial property investment, culminating in the multi-million pound public company he founded.

A Director of its Theatre Royal in past years, he and his wife Elizabeth have become much involved with the homeless and youth of Bath, through local charities and The Brain of Bath Annual Quiz and the Wessex Property Club, both of which were founded by the author.
