How many vehicles in your fleet?
I am responsible for 150 vehicles
Is fleet management a job you can switch off from?
I am passionate about all forms of motorised transport. I enjoy restoring lifeless vehicles into a roadworthy state and on the business side I am on 24 hour call so it can be hard to switch off.
What advice would you give to someone considering joining the industry?
Account for every eventuality. If you think it won’t happen, it probably will.
What is the worst thing a driver has done?
I have seen a few drivers trying to fill oil through the dipstick but in all I have been quite lucky as my drivers tend to ask for something to be done, rather than doing it themselves.
If you were transport minister, what policy would you introduce?
I would like to see the driving test retaken every 10 years. I think it would remove a lot of the bad habits people pick up as well as filtering out lucky drivers who passed previously or whose skills have deteriorated.
