Adrian Pullin has been named 2012 Driver of the Year.

Travis Perkins driver takes home top title in competition

Published:  28 March, 2013

Adrian Pullin from the Travis Perkins timber supply centre in Cardiff has beaten tough competition from across the Travis Perkins Group to be named the 2012 Driver of the Year.

The award recognised 18 top-rated drivers from the nationwide building materials supplier who delivered exemplary standards across the year. Although the shortlist was generated via transport statistics and information from its Masternaut system, it was a colleague vote that led Mr Pullin to win £2,000 in holiday vouchers.

Mr Pullin said: “It was a great privilege to come home with the top title and for all drivers in the company to be recognised for their daily efforts to improve road safety, service and efficiency. I’m looking forward to using the vouchers for a well-earned break before getting back behind the wheel.”

Graham Bellman, director of fleet service, said: “This annual award gives us the opportunity to celebrate excellence across a huge transport network. This has been a great way of encouraging engagement and recognition of the difficult job our drivers do. These are the team members that often have the most contact with customers and commonly work alone – as the public face of each business, it is incredibly important that we applaud colleagues, such as Adrian, who continue to make a massive contribution to our success.”

The Driver of the Year competition was open to all Group brands including Keyline, City Plumbing Supplies (CPS), CCF, Plumbing Trade Supplies (PTS), BSS, Wickes, Benchmarx and F&P Wholesale.
