What’s the most exciting thing about your job?
Every day there’s an opportunity for win-win relationships between our customers, our team and our shareholders – this gives me a buzz.

Too many to name, but fundamentally good honest business people with integrity.
If you were an item in a warehouse, what would you be?
A folding crate – very useful but can keep out of the way when not needed…

Be more positive and worry less. Everything I’ve ever worried about hasn’t happened or has been overcome easily.
What’s your favourite pastime?
Working in the garden on a Saturday afternoon.
Do you play a sport, follow a sport or support a team?
Join in playing football with my two young sons.

In the early days of business, driving miles to see a customer who knew a lot more about the industry than me.

An Indian Meal with my family.

Give more money away to others in need.

Any Golden Oldies (not modern stuff that my kids like…)
What would be your advice to someone thinking about coming into the industry (apart from “don’t do it”)?
Always remember how useful you are to society in Logistics. Without movement of goods, everything would grind to a halt.
