Commercial Motor
December 29, 2017

My favourite holiday destination is…
The Maldives, where I went on my honeymoon. It is an absolutely stunning place and should be on everyone’s bucket list of places to visit.

I drive an…
Audi TT. I’m on our company car scheme so I am in the fortunate position of being able to swap my car every three months. It isn’t really a family car, but it’s good fun to drive.

My hobbies are…
Getting out and about around Derbyshire on my mountain bike. I also do a fair bit of swimming to try and keep fit, although it can get a bit boring in the pool, so I try to go open-water swimming when time allows.

My favourite TV programmes are…
The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones, although Band of Brothers is certainly up there as one of my favourite box sets.

The celebrity I would most like to meet is…
Sir Alex Ferguson – a true Manchester United Legend. I’d also like to meet Cameron Diaz.

I got into the industry because…
It was a case of right time, right place. I was working in a completely different industry and at the time the company I worked for was being taken over. I decided to make the leap and try a new challenge.

To encourage more young people into the industry we…
Need to generate more interest in the industry and make it more glamorous. I think the recent upsurge of interest in truck racing could help raise the profile of the industry.

MAN is different from the competition because…
We are the only manufacturer in the UK that employs our own sales force.
