A MILTON Keynes man has gone from traffic clerk to being the owner of his own franchised recruitment business.

Simon French has purchased the Driver Hire franchise for Milton Keynes and taken it to a new home in Queensway, Bletchley.

The business came on the market because current owners Wayne and Lisa Stroud decided to crystallize their investment. A good Driver Hire franchise can achieve £1million annual turnover.

Driver Hire provides temporary and permanent drivers and other logistics staff to local and national organisations.

Simon spent the last decade as business development director of Healthcare Logistics, now known as Movianto. He said: “Healthcare Logistics was a management buyout. This experience made me think that it was time I ran my own show. “
