Lisa Fleming

Managing Director, Driver Hire Darlington

Background

I am a qualified transport manager and have worked within logistics and transport management for the past 14 years. I worked for DSG Retail as an operations manager for five years. I decided to set up my own business running a fleet of 35 HGV vehicles, which supports DSG Retail with their Home Delivery and installation services. The business operates seven days a week, and has a high dependency for agency drivers, due to the non-compliant drivers been supplied by local recruitment agencies, I decided to purchase Driver Hire Darlington, and looked to make a difference to our transport business and as well as other local Haulage companies.

Why are you a member of ABPC

I work locally with quite a few of the businesses on the business park. I am passionate about engaging, strengthening the relationships and driving the business park forward to work together and connect with each other, which in return will support business growth within the business park.

Likes about business &/or ABP

I enjoy meeting and engaging with the people on the business park. It’s really good to hear a success story of a local business and it feels good to be part of one of the biggest business parks in the North-East.

Hobbies/interests

I have three children under the age of eight, who keep me busy outside of work!
