Welcoming Geoff as the new franchisee of Driver Hire Walsall
Geoff Marshall has bought Driver Hire’s Walsall recruitment business.
Geoff has an interesting CV. A qualified electrical engineer, before buying his Driver Hire franchise, Geoff owned and operated several successful businesses in manufacturing, retail and businesses services. Most recently he was a contractor on the estates team at Birmingham City University.
“I was looking for a new business opportunity, but didn’t want to do a business start-up,” says Geoff who lives in Sutton Coldfield. “I first came across Driver Hire about three years ago. It offered me a perfect opportunity to invest in a well-established business model with the freedom to develop my own successful enterprise. I’ve been waiting for the right local opportunity to come along. I’m really excited by the prospect of running my own Driver Hire franchise and meeting the transport & logistics staffing needs of local businesses.”
To maintain continuity, Geoff is retaining the team that worked with Adrian Underwood, the previous owner. In addition, Geoff’s son, Jonathan will be joining them. “They’ve been highly successful and I wanted to ensure that existing customers enjoyed a seamless handover of ownership.”
Welcoming Geoff to Driver Hire’s nationwide network, Graham Duckworth, Driver Hire’s Franchise Sales Director said: “We wish Geoff well and look forward to supporting and helping him develop his Driver Hire franchise business.”
As the UK’s largest specialist supplier with a nationwide network of franchised offices, Driver Hire provides temporary and permanent drivers and other logistics staff to local and national organisations in both the public and the private sector. If they’re short of staff – perhaps because of illness, holidays or seasonal demand – Driver Hire will supply them with a suitable replacement.
