First and foremost, which do you prefer – Tea or Coffee?
I like a tea first and then I have a coffee (so both).
How long have you worked at Alliance Tool Hire and how did you end up in your current role?
I started working for Dave & Mags as a driver 30 years ago and then took on the role of a manager. So, I’ve been with them for many years.
What gets you ready and raring to go in the morning?
I’m an early bird anyway, so I’m always rearing to go in the morning.
What are your proudest achievements in your professional and personal life?
The proudest moment in my professional life is becoming a manager, and the proudest moment in my personal life has to be my family and Chelsea winning the Champions League!
What does a perfect Saturday night look like for you?
Nowadays, it would be a takeaway and falling asleep watching Match of the Day.
Tell us three things about your role that you want your customers to know.
I’m reliable, honest and fair.
If you could invite anyone to dinner, who would it be and why?
It would have to be Oliver Reed (I’m sure it would be a good night).
Describe Alliance Tool Hire in three words.
Quality, honesty and experienced.
Alliance is moving its North London depot down the road to Cygnus Business Park in Willesden! What can you tell us about this?
The new location is in a very busy part of North London so we should do very well there. A few of us have worked at this location before. We are all looking forward to the new challenge.
