Interest

I enjoy playing weekend league cricket (Vice captain Seaford seagulls cricket club), Golf, and am a member of The Princess of Wales Royal Regiment Association. I am an avid reader and a follower of motor sports. I enjoy socialising and travel.

I have been learning to cross country ski in canada , as well as trying my hand at ice hockey.

Summary

I have over 12 years experience in the Motor Vehicle Industry. For the last 2 years I have been working as a commercial manager for Partsource in Canada . Prior to this I had ten years experience working in Parts Departments with Stevens Vauxhall and in different branches of Caffyns Plc.

I am now keen to build on my extensive experience within the Parts field. I am willing to learn and expand my expertise within a different franchise or within a different field that offers new challenges.
