I began my career in the Royal Signals (British Army) in the late 1980’s. The Royal Signals is a technical corps, employing many different trades from Radio Operators to Telecommunication Technicians. I joined as a Driver Electrician, specialising in vehicle maintenance, generator repair & maintenance, and power distribution. As my career progressed, I served in numerous locations and operations throughout the world, gaining promotions along the way.
Throughout my career there have been many highlights including:
Head of Electrical Training at the Defence School of Communications and Information Systems (DSCIS), at Blandford in 2004.
Taking a leading role within transport in 2008, when I became the Senior Transport Manager of a large regiment in Bulford, Wiltshire responsible for a fleet of 250 vehicles and drivers.
In 2009 I was selected to become the Regimental Sergeant Major of the City of London Regiment, responsible for large squadrons in Southfields, Coulsdon, Kingston-Upon-Thames, Banbury, Eastbourne, and Brighton. This position included maintaining the daily standards of all soldiers’ welfare, career development, training, and appraisals of junior and senior officers.
My last appointment prior to joining Woking Community Transport, was as a Training Officer at DSCIS. Whilst holding this position I was invited to attend HRH Princess Anne’s garden party, at Buckingham Palace, in honour of HRH’s 60th birthday.
I was delighted to be appointed Chief Executive and Managing Director of Woking Community Transport in 2012, and I look forward to steering the organisation as it continues to grow, providing a reliable, personal and friendly service to the community.
