Before entering the taxi industry I was involved in credit management and finance. I received my Driver’s Authorization in Oct 1989, and owned a TSV License from 1996 - 2009. I was the Managing Director of Townsville Taxis from 1999 to 2008, but have since moved to Suncoast Cabs, in the position of General Manager. We look after the Sunshine Coast region. In terms of involvement within the Taxi Council of Queensland, I have been a member of the Executive since 2001; as a board member from 2003 – 2009 and the Junior Vice President from 2005 – 2008. I was on the Driver of the Year Committee in 2008-09.
