And for this reason, we listen to our employee’s needs and encourage them to share their knowledge to help their colleagues improve. We’re dedicated to helping our team achieve their best and build their confidence; from LGV licenses, NPORS or LGV CPC Operators courses, we take great pride in financially assisting them to gain new qualifications and as a result strengthen the already solid base that Brunel has been built on.
Having worked for Brunel from the age of 14, Brian has grown and evolved with the Company. He became MD in 2018, following his father’s retirement, and his hands-on approach ensures that we continue to grow, while delivering the high-quality service Brunel is known for.
Former Military man Steve has over 20 years’ experience in the Transport Sector. Responsible for maintenance and safety of all our vehicles, Steve is the oracle of fleet management and logistics. He’s never afraid to get his hands dirty and muck in with his team.
SENIOR WORKSHOP MANAGER
A man of few words, Senior Workshop Manager Tom Smith can usually be found elbow deep in grease, keeping the Brunel cogs turning. With 20 years experience within the industry, we are yet to find something that he can’t repair. His knowledge and time are simply invaluable.
Following a snapped achillies in 2019, Luke, known to his team as ‘Chappie’ was forced to prematurely end his professional rugby career at Plymouth Albion RFC. Luke joined Brunel and brought with him some of rugby’s core values; teamwork, respect and discipline. Now General Foreman Luke ensures that the Brunel site runs safely and smoothly producing the highest quality products.
Max has worked across all sectors of the business, but the majority of this time is now focused on his new role in the Group as MD of Plymouth Albion RFC. As family businesses go, he remains a key part of Brunel’s continued success.
For use of a better phrase, David is the ‘founding father’ of the Group. David stepped down as Managing Director in 2018 and handed the reins over to his children, Brian, Max and Eleanor. You will more than likely find him cutting the grass and listening to Motown, enjoying his well-earned retirement!
GROUP ACCOUNTANT & COMPANY SECRETARY
After a successful solo accounting career Eleanor joined the family business in 2019 taking responsibility for HR & Finance across the whole Group. An integral part of the team, Eleanor supports our staff and is a driving force in pushing the Group forward.
