The biggest challenge for Speed will be further impacts of the reforms, reducing the number of people making claims due to the minimum tariff compensation now available to injured people, that said every challenge creates opportunities.
Tell us a little about yourself outside of work
Outside of work I like to try and keep fit, I go to the gym at 6am Monday – Friday it’s a great way to start the day and having young children (twin Boys of 7 years) means once I finish the working day I get to spend time with them and listen to their daily activities. I am also learning to play golf. It looks so easy but is definitely harder than it looks!
Living in Macclesfield I’m spoilt by the Cheshire countryside and enjoy an occasional dog walk and a stop in the pub for a refreshing drink!
