Case studies of Driver Hire Franchisees.
Vance & Sue Parsons – Hereford & Worcester
This husband and wife team have really hit the road running after buying their territory in September 2013. Their early success has already won them a number of awards and they’re still keen to grow the business further.
Gee Bains – London South East
Gee chose to wait until a suitable territory became available in May 2010 before joining Driver Hire. He had become aware of Driver Hire through Enfield franchisee Manjit Singh, a personal friend.
Manjit Singh – Enfield
In the first couple of years Manjit’s new business prospered, thanks to his own drive and energy, and the support and business opportunities provided by Driver Hire.
Michael Connaughton – Former Stockport Franchisee
Michael, together with his wife Nicol, purchased Driver Hire’s Stockport franchise as a re-sale in 2008.
Ed Pockney – Uxbridge
Ed joined Driver Hire in November 2014. With a business background in derivatives and money-broking, prior to Driver Hire he’d spent 28 years working in major financial centres around the world: London, New York and Tokyo.
George Griffiths – Bury St Edmunds & Ipswich
George, who is originally from New Zealand, is a qualified Accountant and spent many years working for a number of motor dealerships. Redundancy provided George with the motivation to work for himself.
Roy McLellan – Dundee & Perth
Roy McLellan came to Driver Hire in 2009 with an impressive track record in logistics, including a spell as Royal Mail’s Scotland & Northern Ireland Distribution Director.
Sarah Matthews – Lincoln
Sarah Matthews has spent much of her life in the education sector and had relatively limited commercial experience prior to buying Driver Hire Lincoln.
