July 29, 2016

My favourite holiday destination is…

Dubai in winter, for guaranteed sun, and Italy in the summer, as I love the culture, food and the people.

I drive a…

Porsche Cayenne.

My hobbies are…

Fitness and travel.

I got into the industry when…

I left college. My first job was a contracts manager with BRS in Swansea.

To encourage young people into the industry we should…

Offer more apprenticeships as they are a good starting block. However, the most important lesson for young people is the understanding that success comes through hard work, commitment and loyalty, and this goes hand-in-hand with making a few sacrifices along the way.

The outlook for our sector over the next 12 months is…

Good. As an Iveco dealer, we have access to the best product line-ups in the industry, including two International Truck of the Year winners and an International Van of the Year. We offer fleets opportunities to boost sustainability through Iveco’s expertise in natural gas and electric vehicles and next-generation products like the new Stralis XP. I can only see our market share increasing.
