I have been involved in the removal industry for over 38 years, starting on the lorries as a porter then as an HGV Driver before moving into the office and covering just about every role in between including being a CPC Holder. I have covered Domestic Moving, Commercial Moving, European Moving and Overseas as well as dipping my toe into Self Storage.
I am currently the Chairman of the Southern Area for the last four years and have just completed a two-year term of office as the CMG Chairman and I have been on the CMG Council for approximately 5 years. In my time, I have been involved with the South Western Area, Western Area and Southern area as well as working at various offices throughout the country.
Having just completed my two year Chairmanship of the CMG, it has given me a real insight into the workings of the Association and also the hard work and effort that goes on behind the scenes by the Board members. I would very much like to continue this work as it’s an ever changing and evolving scene that I honestly feel that I can add to.
I have a passionate belief in the removals industry and the BAR as a whole. I see my role to be one of support, guidance and also an avenue for Members to not only discuss any problems or concerns. But to also receive answers, suggestions and support. I see that the industry is going through a vitally import stage of evolution and encouraging new members as well as the young movers is the way that we should be heading. I also believe that current Members should be made to feel valued and appreciated as we have a vast ocean of knowledge contained within the Association which can be tapped into.
I have made many lifelong friends over the years and feel that through my rounded knowledge of the workings of the Association and that having worked throughout the country, I feel that I can appreciate problems and present any questions in a balanced and understanding way whilst defending the integrity and values of the BAR.
