Michael O’Flynn, joint franchisee at Driver Hire Grimsby & Scunthorpe, has been appointed Chair of the North East Lincs Chamber of Commerce Area Council.
Micheal and his wife, Jayne, have been running their Driver Hire franchise since 2016; Michael has been a Chamber member for several years.
Playing an active part in the local community – both at a business level and in the wider community – is an important element in Driver Hire Grimsby & Scunthorpe’s success. Under the leadership of the O’Flynn’s their business has raised nearly £20,000 for children’s charity, ‘When you wish upon a star’. As a result they’ve been nominated for a Chamber of Commerce ‘Business in the Community’ award.
Commenting on his appointment, Michael O’Flynn said: “I’m very pleased to be given this important role. These are interesting times for local businesses – particularly those in transport & logistics – with the Humber ports now being seriously considered an alternative to Dover following Brexit.”
