In February 2022 I joined the company, having worked in the motor trade for nearly 40 years. This is a real change for me and with the transition I have made, it gives me an opportunity to provide a valued service to the community as well as spending more time with my family. My parents moved to Stowmarket in 1986 so I have had local connections for many years.

I live in Ipswich with my wife and have two sons and one grandson. My hobbies include walking, skiing, gardening and generally enjoying the outdoors with my family and of course I still have a passion for cars and own a 1963 Ford Anglia.
