ACFO secretary stands down after job change

ASSOCIATION of Car Fleet Operators' national secretary Jim Thorn has stood down due to a job change. Thorn, currently transport officer with charity Barnado's on a three-day-a-week basis, has been national secretary since taking over the post from John Hughes in 1992. He stood down with effect from Sunday (December 1).

Simultaneously a major fleet review is taking place at the charity following corporate transport and insurance manager Reg Freeman's decision to accept early retirement. The charity operates a fleet of 370 vehicles.

Thorn, who will remain a director of ACFO and continue to support the association in a number of ways, is to take up a new post with a major fleet supplier. He had previously been employed on a full-time basis by the charity but opted for retirement before returning part-time. ACFO has yet to decide on a successor to Thorn as national secretary.
