Hitting the £1 million mark
Last week Driver Hire East London hit the £1m mark and is currently 13% up on last year’s turnover.
Richard Pugh is of course happy with the news and the hard work he and his team have put in this year. Richard comments; “We made sure that as a business we benefited from having the Olympics on our doorstep. We’ve had to be proactive but our efforts have paid off.”
During the build-up to the Games, the office processed over 500 candidate applications and recruited 70 new staff. During the big event they supplied drivers to Olympic teams and media crews from Brazil, Canada and Japan. To ensure a strong corporate identity was maintained, the office supplied their team of temps with Driver Hire uniforms and even produced Driver Hire branded chocolates.
