New owners at Driver Hire Hull
We'd like to give a big welcome to new owners at Driver Hire Hull - Andrew and Debbie Wilkinson.
“After 12 years managing a number of Yorkshire-based restaurants, we both felt it was time for a new challenge,” says Debbie. “The opportunity to buy a Driver Hire business came along at just the right time. We both liked the award-winning business model and, as road transport is a highly regulated industry it's good to know Driver Hire has all the systems in place to help us ensure that both us and our clients stay compliant.”
Andrew, during the 1980s was proprietor of the used-car section of a VW/Audi car dealership in Huddersfield. He then used his motor industry experience with EMAP Automotive, where he became MD. Andrew’s contribution to the motor industry was recognised in 1997 when he was awarded life membership of the Institute of Transport Management.
Before creating their successful business partnership in the hospitality industry, Debbie honed her skills working as a PA for CAP Motor Research Ltd, an online publishing company. Alongside recruitment and HR, her responsibilities included project management, office systems and production of essential management information.
“The fundamentals of the business aren’t changing,” says Andrew. “Stephanie and Valerie Cook, who’ve been here for many years, are at the heart of the new team. Together we’re 100% committed to continuing the delivery of great service to clients old and new. At the same time, we’re also widening our range of services to include Driver CPC training and permanent recruitment.
