I have two coffees while looking over the days’ work.

What’s your biggest achievement in the industry to date?

I guess it’s giving people back their independence and quality of life. They can’t thank me enough.

What do you most enjoy about working in the industry?

Travelling to new areas and meeting people.

What’s the hardest part of your job?

The paperwork!

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

Try not to dwell on things, tackle them and move on.

Which other company (inside or outside the industry) do you most admire and why?

It would have to be our brilliant NHS – the nurses and doctors are superb.

If you could invite any four people (dead or alive) to a dinner party, who would they be?

It would be an invite to the pub. I would invite my mum, who I’ve never met, my best mate, Cudge, who died, my wife and my best mate now, Bonk.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

It took 18 months to get our rescue dog into the car. Now we love to take him all over.

If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you buy?

It’s more, what would I sell to make room for my new Bugatti?
