    Association with the NAA 

    A few years, interested in cars and the industry as a whole and meeting other members across different areas of the industry.

    Why did you join the NAA?

    To grow and enhance Element’s profile in the industry particularly in the North of England and to expand our customer base in this area as well to network and learn from other members and like-minded companies.


    Married with two amazing children and a beautiful labradoodle named Rafa.   A keen golfer and tennis player (body permitting!)

    Favourite football team

    Don’t really follow football that much, much more enjoy watching tennis and golf.

    Musical performer

    House classics from the late 1990’s!


    Lots but one that the one springs to mind today is The Shawshank Redemption.


    The Coffin Dancer by Jeffrey Deaver

    Best motoring moment

    Borrowing my friend’s Ferrari 599GTB quite often as he lives in Hong Kong and likes me to drive it for him.
