Driver Hire has made a number of internal promotions within its Senior Management team.

According to the company, the changes reflect Driver Hire’s ongoing focus on network expansion, training, permanent recruitment and franchise sales.

The changes have seen former Franchise Sales Director, Tony Goacher, take on the role of Network Development Director with the brief to lead the overall growth and development of Driver Hire’s nationwide network, working with franchise owners and his team of Area Development Managers.

Goacher’s successor as Franchise Sales Director is Graham Duckworth, a prominent and successful member of the Driver Hire team for a number of years. Duckworth is aiming to continue last year’s success when, through a mix of franchise resales and greenfield sites, 10 new franchise owners achieved their personal ambitions by joining the Driver Hire network.

Commenting on the appointments, Chris Chidley, Driver Hire’s Chief Executive, said: “Our highly regarded 24/7 service and industry knowledge combined with added value products such as driver training gives Driver Hire a winning mix. These recently announced appointments will ensure that we are able to carry through our business plans in 2012 delivering great service to our clients and continued success for our franchise owners.”
