    Apart from that
    Also members of the NEAA

    Association with NAA
    Members for 3 years

    Why did you join the NAA?
    Starting a new team focused on Automotive you need sound links into the industry to learn; the NAA was our ideal link.

    Married with two children and two fantastic grandsons. My passion outside of family is my classic motorcycle collection of mainly Italian bikes. When I am not restoring bikes I love to tour around Europe and especially Northern Spain. This has become a regular trip for the lads and each year we have between 8 and 12 friends make the journey.

    Favourite football team
    Manchester United but also keep an eye on Bolton Wanderers.

    Musical performer
    Bruce Springsteen

    Home Alone 1 & 2. Just kills me!!

    Anything on bikes!

    Best motoring moment
    Touring around Europe in 1977 with my best mate on my 350 Triumph! No motorway, no map and no idea!!

    Best business advice you’ve ever received?
    It’s a quote from Calvin Coolidge: “Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”
