Biography

I want to be able to look back and think… wow, did we really do all that? I’m incredibly competitive, whether that be a game of 5-a-side or table tennis.

Really, I’m just a working-class lad from Stoke with a burning desire to succeed. I focus on hiring amazing people, and take every opportunity to coach and empower them to live our vision and values. I’m also surrounded by some very experienced, talented and humble partners. I make sure we always celebrate our successes. I make tough decisions too but that’s part of it.

We’re No.1 in the Midlands and I want to take this even further. I want to live with no regrets, continue to work hard, play hard and out of work spend time being a great husband and Dad.
