All systems go as Gary takes over at Blackburn

Driver Hire Blackburn has a new owner – Gary Pugh. He’s taken over the highly successful office from long-standing franchisee, Iain Westman.

Gary is well-suited to being a Driver Hire franchisee. Before buying Driver Hire Blackburn, Gary was a successful franchisee with parcel delivery business Lynx Express. Prior to that he was Business Development Director at an Interlink Express, depot where he helped it become the most successful in the Interlink franchise network.

“I was looking for a new business opportunity,” says Gary. “I researched several franchising opportunities before settling on Driver Hire. I like the business model which enables me to offer an in-depth range of recruitment services including the supply of temporary and permanent drivers, Driver CPC training and our licence checking system, dh Licence Check.”

Gary adds: “The back-up, systems and support offered by a Driver Hire franchise are almost unrivalled and give me every opportunity to grow a successful business, serving the needs of local employers and candidates alike. I am of course retaining the recruitment team who have worked alongside Iain Westman for many years. I’m really looking forward to serving the needs of the business community here in Blackburn and the surrounding area.”

Welcoming Gary to Driver Hire, Franchise Sales Director, Graham Duckworth, said:  “I’m delighted that Gary has joined the Driver Hire network. His past experience in transport & logistics coupled with his enthusiasm and drive will ensure that Blackburn continues to be another top performing Driver Hire franchise.”
