How long have you worked at Alliance Tool Hire and how did you end up in your current role?
I’ve been working at Alliance for three years now.
What gets you ready and raring to go in the morning?
Loads of coffee.
What are your proudest achievements in your professional and personal life?
First and foremost, my children, I am most proud of them. In terms of my professional achievements, I have won various awards at truck shows which is a great achievement of mine.
What does a perfect Saturday night look like for you?
An ideal Saturday night for me is sitting in front of the TV with a glass of beer!
Tell us three things about your role that you want your customers to know.
I enjoy meeting new customers, I like to get to the site, unload and get on to the next job and I love long-distance driving.
If you could invite anyone to dinner, who would it be and why?
My good friend Phil sadly died last year, and I miss the laughter we had.
Describe Alliance Tool Hire in three words.
Friendly, challenging and rewarding.
You are notorious for taking such pride in your truck! Could you tell us more about this and possibly some tales you would like to share with customers?
With most of my days being spent travelling in my truck, it’s important for me to be in a nice, clean place, as it really is like a home from home for me.
When I turn up to different sites with my truck, it is a great talking point with the customers. I get the chance to talk about its backstory while also showing off its different features, including the lights that I have fitted myself!
Throughout the years, I have won four trophies and three highly commended awards at events like the United Truckers Show in 2019, and Truckfest in 2018 and 2021! I am extremely proud of these achievements.
