Tony grabs a slice of the Croydon cake

Tony Goacher is the new owner of Driver Hire’s Croydon office, taking over from long-standing franchisee, Dave Dench.

Tony isn’t new to Driver Hire – or indeed the recruitment industry. He was a member of Driver Hire’s senior management team before deciding to become his own boss. He’s also highly experienced, having clocked up 22 years in the recruitment industry, the last seven of which were with Driver Hire.

Commenting on his decision to become his own boss, Tony said: “Since joining Driver Hire’s senior management team I’ve helped a large number of franchisees develop highly successful businesses. When the opportunity came along to buy my local Driver Hire office it was too good to miss. In addition it also means I’ll be at home more which, with a growing family, is a real bonus. I’m looking forward to developing the business further, extending our range of services to an even greater cross-section of local industry.”

Graham Duckworth, Driver Hire’s Franchise Sales Director added: “It’s not too often that I can say I’ve actually worked alongside one of our franchisees! Tony’s past experience in transport & logistics coupled with his enthusiasm and drive will ensure that Croydon continues to be another top performing Driver Hire franchise.”
