My father had worked in automotive so I pretty much grew up in car dealerships; I think it was in my DNA. My first job was in 1990 as a trainee sales executive in a busy Ford dealership.
My first car was a Mini Mayfair – UAB384Y. I just about fitted in it and absolutely loved it. I wonder if it is still on the road today? I’m currently driving a BMW 530e, I’ve only just picked it up and we are getting along rather nicely so far. My dream car is an easy one, a Porsche 911 997 Turbo. Beautiful, sleek and incredibly fast.
Without a shadow of a doubt, it would be my four children. There has been no greater achievement than helping them develop into rounded, bright and incredibly funny individuals.
Cricket is a huge passion of mine, especially test matches and I try and see as much as I can possibly fit in. One of my goals for retirement is to follow England on tour somewhere nice and sunny!
Ska, reggae and indie rock.
Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Green Wing.
ESPN Cricinfo. I love statistics, data and cricket!
My iPhone. Everything that I need is at my fingertips and the ability to stream music through my car by asking Siri to play something continues to amaze me
Legislation, lack of clarity over diesel and WLTP are the biggest challenges that we currently face. But it is still a fantastic industry to be involved in and, for every challenge that it faces, a new solution and dynamic will evolve. It is an industry for forward thinking and fresh ideas; traditional ways of doing things are becoming outdated at a far faster rate than ever before.
