The start point for the best source of fleet information

Peter Ormsby of Chevin Fleet Solutions answers Barker's Dozen

Date: 12 October 2016   |   Author:

1 What was your first job?

I worked on a Youth Training Scheme as a mechanic - this then turned into a fitter job. A change of career led me to computing. I loved it from the start and have been in the computing and software sector ever since.

2 What was your first company car, and what do you drive now?

My first company car was a Peugeot 309. Now, I drive a Ford Mondeo.

3 What did you listen to on your last car journey?

Radio 2 on the way to work. Chris Evans was the presenter and he was talking about Leicester City's incredible Premier League win [last season]. I've never been a club supporter, although I grew up in Leicester so it should be my home team!

4 What one thing do you wish you could do better?

Speak more languages.

5 What's your biggest achievement?

I'm proud of what I've achieved in my work history, so far. I've worked with some great clients and sometimes it has involved difficult challenges, but I wouldn't change it. I very much enjoy what I do

6 What are your three favourite films?

1) Shawshank Redemption - a story of triumph over adversity; 2) Pulp Fiction - it gives you an insight into a risky, edgy underworld; 3) Fargo - a film with forever deepening levels of creepiness.

7 What's the stupidest thing you've done?

I once skied with one leg in a plaster cast.

8 What was the most hotly debated topic at your last meeting

Car sharing. Will it really take off?

9 What would be your specialist subject on Mastermind?

1980s pop music!

10 What's the worst thing about your job?

I've not not been here long but I haven't encountered anything. Yes, I have to say that! But really, it's a great team.

11 What one law would you make or change?

All produce grown for consumption must be accepted for sale by supermarkets, no matter how distorted or gnarly-looking it is.

12 What did you want to be when you grew up?

From a very young age I wanted to be a farmer, and that was because my family owned a farm. I used to love seeing how it all worked.

13 Who is your ideal celebrity date?

Motor sports correspondent and presenter Suzi Perry.
