When Mike first joined Renault as Area Manager, Parts, I was Regional Parts Manager and his boos. He worked for me for several years and was a genuine, unassuming nice bloke. I can’t think he ever had a bad word to say about anyone or anything, and as a team colleague he was always hard working, committed to the job and supportive of his colleagues – above all he was a fantastic team player.
Mike had a wealth of experience in the motor trade, especially in service and parts, and that gave him great credibility with the dealer network and his colleagues over many years with us.
When I think of Mike, most of all I think of him as a true Yorkshireman – down to earth, no fuss, reliable and with a dry sense of humour.
My deepest sympathies to Anne and his family at such a terrible loss, coming far too soon. Take care.
