There were celebrations at Cambridge airport this week to celebrate Marshall Leasing's 50,000 vehicles leased milestone.
The event, hosted by Marshall Leasing and sponsored by Matrix Telematics, also celebrated the achievements of Dr John Taylor (pictured) and Sir Michael Marshall for their combined 135 years as pilots.
Taylor spoke to engineers and apprentices about his life as an inventor and his innovative invention of the ‘Otter G’ switch, which is a vehicle motor protector, thermal safety cut-out and thermostat.
Marshall Leasing’s sales and marketing director Jonathan Ross said: “We’ve celebrated the leasing of 50,000 vehicles which is a phenomenal achievement.
"It is 29 years since Peter Cakebread and I took on the challenge, and Marshall Leasing has been supported by the Marshall family throughout.
“It seems highly appropriate to mark this milestone in Marshall Leasing’s history at Cambridge airport with an array of such special people, as we celebrate our past and look to our future.”
Matrix Telematics’ sales director Phil Powell said: “This fantastic event at Cambridge airport is about celebrating Marshall Leasing’s amazing achievements, but also shows our commitment to supporting the relationship which has blossomed over the last couple of years.”
Marshall Leasing’s managing director Peter Cakebread said: “We have a great heritage, and we have worked hard with Northridge Finance to ensure that we retain the key values which have made Marshall Leasing stand out.
"We have always taken an innovative approach to our business so it’s fantastic to be honouring two of Britain’s most entrepreneurial businessmen here today.”
