    We have 2,650 vehicles. As part of the Aviva committee, we cover a further 2,000 rescue commercial vehicles, 3,500 driving school vehicles and 1,100 bodyshop courtesy vehicles.

  • What is your fleet history?

    I joined the motor industry from a career in internal combustion engineering in the Royal Navy in 1975. Since then, I have spent time in car and truck rental and leasing, guaranteed buy-back programmes, corporate fleet management and car engineering.

    In general, covering the industry from a multi-discipline basis is the best way of keeping the flame alive.

    Getting into the car rental game when funding through short-term buy-backs was the new kid on the block in the early eighties.

    Artemis Fowl, by Eion Colfer.
