After 10 years at Ford, how are you finding your new company?
When you move company, you’ve got to familiarise yourself with a new set of people and processes. It’s been easier than I thought, largely because of the people here.
Which of your jobs – past or present – have you enjoyed the most?
The most satisfying was at Ford Rental – we took a mature business that was in decline and re-energised it to great effect.
What is an average day for you?
It starts at 6:30am and ends at 8pm. I could be anywhere in the UK or I could spend the day in my office in Putney.
Did you always envisage a career in the motor industry?
No, I trained as a chartered accountant but decided my personality needed more of an outlet.
I started as a temp at Ford and haven’t looked back since.
What motivates you in a morning?
My four-month-old baby in the next room always gets me out of bed in a sharp fashion.
