FDTA secretary is Mr Bigg

THE Fleet Driver Training Association has appointed a secretary for the first time to manage its affairs. Graham Bigg will assume the administrative responsibilities of the FDTA during the course of the year, and his position will be ratified at the association's next annual meeting.

He will work closely with the first chairman of the FDTA, James Sutherland, managing director of Peak Performance Management. Bigg is chairman of Bigg & Roberston Plastics Ltd and a car enthusiast. He sat the BSM High Performance Course in 1964, and is now president of the High Performance Club. He has also been a member of the Institute of Advanced Motorists since 1980.

'I am very excited at the proposition of bringing my organisational skills to the FDTA, where I see my role as a facilitator. I am very keen on risk management and its effect on company car drivers,' he said. The FDTA continues to make progress towards establishing an independently audited qualification for fleet driver trainers, a goal which has received backing from the Driving Standards Agency. Membership of the FDTA now stands at 18 leading training companies, with Driving Development becoming the latest member, and a number of other companies have recently shown interest in joining the association.
