Welcoming our new franchisee in Nottingham
A huge welcome to our new franchisee at Driver Hire Nottingham – Michael Goodfellow.
Before buying the Driver Hire Nottingham business, Michael had 30 years experience in sales, working most recently for Xtralis. Now part of Honeywell, Xtralis is a leading global provider of smoke, fire, gas, and security early detection systems. Michael was the General Manager for Europe, Middle East and Asia.
Michael decided to buy his Driver Hire franchise because he wanted to be master of his own destiny, using his sales skills to create a highly successful business.
“I did a massive amount of research and due diligence before settling on Driver Hire,” says Michael. “I love sales – it’s my core skill. My management role with Xtralis meant that I was getting further away from talking to clients, which I missed. Now I’m really looking forward to working with customers old and new here in Nottingham. Driver Hire has a great business model and I’m keen to meet local business people to explain how our recruitment and training services can help them.”
Welcoming Michael to Driver Hire, Franchise Sales Director, Graham Duckworth, said: “I’m delighted that Michael has joined the Driver Hire network. He has been a model professional throughout the negotiation process and is an excellent addition to our nationwide network. His enthusiasm and drive will ensure he’s able to capitalise on the many opportunities to grow the business in Nottingham and be a highly successful franchisee.”
