    Association with NAA

    We have been involved with the NAA on and off for many years, I recently took part in the first cohort of the Peer Networking programme which I can very much recommend.

    Why did you join the NAA?

    To gain further insight into the UK automotive supply chain. To network with other businesses/people.


    Married, three children (12, 10, 6), 13 year old Border Terrier with arthritis and diabetes! With the kids’ football/roller skating/netball etc that keeps me busy. Enjoy walking, watching football and meeting/engaging with people.

    Favourite football team

    Bolton Wanderers

    Musical performer

    Pink Floyd


    Pulp Fiction


    Dice Man, Luke Rhinehart

    Best motoring moment

    Driving a Formula Ford at 3 Sisters Circuit, Wigan. Or my recent Tesla Model 3 delivery.

    Best business advice you’ve ever received?

    Two books by Simon Sinek, Start with Why and Leaders Eat Last, changed my outlook on being a leader.
