Driver Hire Borders is our current ‘Office of the Month’. The Galashiels-based business has beaten off the challenge of Driver Hire’s 100 office network to claim the coveted ‘Office of the Month’ prize.
“The Borders team: Viki, Jordan and Jake had an incredible month,” says Rowenna George, Driver Hire’s Scotland & Northern Ireland Area Development Manager. “They achieved year-on-year sales growth of almost 200% and increased the number of customers they billed by 60%. What’s more, they deliver ‘much more than driving’. In fact, during their award winning month, only 7% of revenues were from traditional driving customers. Other work included hospital cleaners, brickies and labourers (helping to restore Sir Walter Scott’s house) and even a ‘cow watcher’!”
The Borders team were presented with a certificate and magnum of champagne to celebrate their success. They’ve also collected points that they can spend on a wide range of prizes including activity days and consumer goods.
Commenting on their award, Stevie Thompson from Wilson Gibb Trading Ltd, owners of Driver Hire Borders, said: “Our heartiest congratulations go to our Borders team. We’re delighted that their efforts have been recognised in this way. I’m sure it’s going to spur them on to even greater efforts during the coming year.”
