Association with NAA
Members since 2014 – we find the site meetings really interesting and generally members are always keen to collaborate.

Why did you join the NAA?
Most of our team have worked in automotive and/or manufacturing at some point, so we love nothing more than visiting sites and looking at processes/products. Our Head of Automotive is a real petrol head (with silent passion for EV) and an automotive fanatic.

Favourite football team~
Manchester United

Musical performer
Bob Marley

Movie
Anything Quentin Tarantino and Where Eagles Dare

Books
Jason Morgan’s “A dog called hope” – if you like inspirational stories that involve dogs this is a real winner. Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits & The Chimp Paradox Dr Steve Peters – training my chimp is a continuously challenging exercise.

Best motoring moment
Driving down the PCH visiting Monterey, Carmel, Santa Barbara, Pismo Beach, Malibu, Santa Monica, Venice and Muscle Beach.
