Avi and Sonny Samra, owners of the Twickenham office of leading driver employment agency Driver Hire, enjoyed a highly successful time at Driver Hire’s annual Winter Conference. Not only did they collect a prestigious Gold Achievement Award for the outstanding sales performance achieved by their office during 2019, they were also crowned Driver Hire’s best ‘New Start’ of the year.
The UK’s largest specialist supplier, Driver Hire provides temporary and permanent drivers and other logistics staff to local and national organisations in both the public and private sector. If they’re short of staff – perhaps because of illness, holidays or seasonal demand – Driver Hire will supply them with a suitable replacement.
“We bought our Driver Hire franchise in 2018 and haven’t looked back,” says Sonny. “If we continue trading at a similar level, we’ll have increased turnover by nearly 50% since taking over the business. In a highly regulated industry, more and more transport operators are recognising the value of working with a 100% reliable supplier for all their recruitment requirements.”
Avi adds: “When it comes to customer service, because we’re a franchise, we offer them the benefits of working with a local, owner-managed business, backed by the resources of a major national company. And, of course, we can help drivers complete their essential Driver CPC training.”
Commenting on the award, Chris Chidley, Driver Hire’s Chief Executive, said, “This is a performance to be proud of, achieved in what are uncertain times. Avi, Sonny and their team at Twickenham are to be congratulated on their success. It’s a result of their hard work, endeavour and the first rate, round the clock service they and their drivers deliver.”
