That’s right, we want to get personal.
WE want to find out a little bit more about you all to share with the rest of the Federation members in this feature. It’s a bit of fun. And here’s Scott Norville of Silverstone Fleet Management telling all.
Silverstone Fleet Management
Car you’re driving at the moment
Mercedes C250 AMG Line Premium Plus
Football or rugby team you support
Neither, but don’t mind going to watch but only going for the beer.
Silverstone in three words
If Carlsberg did..
When you’re not running your business, what do you do to relax?
Cycling, running and the gym. This year focusing on going back to Tae Kwon Do after a 4-year break to complete my 3rd Dan Black Belt.
What’s your favourite restaurant or style of food?
Nando’s. Just love that chicken! Special occasions Les Olives in Northampton. If you haven’t been, go! Best Tapas bar none!
Where’s your favourite place to holiday?
Sun. I dread holidays as find it hard to detach from work, but after 4 days I don’t want to come back. The dream is to have a holiday home in Spain.
If you could unwind one decision or moment in your life, what would it be?
As Robbie Williams once said ‘No Regrets’ I haven’t the time to contemplate on the what ifs, positive thinking is more my thing.
The best funder conference after party?
Nothing sticks out funder wise, but what does, is a BMW Manufacturer party in London a few years back. There will be a few red faces reading this, you know who you are.
FCA compliance has been good for your business because…
Keeping brokers whiter than white. The word ‘Broker’ was a dirty word many years ago to some premium manufacturers, whom ironically sponsor certain broker events so being compliant with the FCA standards is a good thing in my opinion and plays a vital part for respected brokers. In time compliancy will windle out the bedroom brokers.
Emoji – use them or despise them?
Yes, use them a fair bit.
Who is your business hero?
Gary Vaynerchuk (Gary Vee) absolute legend in marketing and social and always listen to the daily podcasts on the way to work. I have learnt and implemented a lot from this chap.
Does your business support local charities? Which ones?
Yes, Air Ambulance & Cynthia Spencer Hospice. My team have many charity events this year with a target of £10K to raise so look out for #WeAreSFM!
Greatest sporting moment
Jade Jones wining Britain’s first Tae Kwon Do Olympic gold medal in 2012 Olympics.
