Meet the Team

Aaron Henry

Aaron Henry

Engineer

Aaron joins us in the workshop whenever he has a spare moment from his busy life as a firefighter. Probably our hardest worker, who never wants to stop for tea.

Chris Edwards

Chris Edwards

Driver

Chris is one of those rare individuals who thrives on long road journeys, especially when towing a heavy trailer.  He prefers an early start, probably reflecting his former career as a newsagent.

Chris Hurdle

Chris Hurdle

Managing Director

Chris is responsible for the day-to-day running of the business and for sourcing stock. His biggest challenge is keeping up with the astonishing rate of growth, and avoiding eating all the biscuits.

Georgina Mitchell

Georgina Mitchell

Sales & Marketing Manager

George manages the company’s sales and marketing functions having recently returned to her native Norfolk from a busy career managing large scale events in London.

Jon Fearn

Jon Fearn

Engineer

Jon spent more than 30 years as an aircraft engineer in the RAF. He loves inventing specialist fittings and accessories for customers’ machines. His two labradors, Jess and Tatti, are often on hand to check for dropped food.

Keith Howarth

Keith Howarth

Logistics Manager

Keith is responsible for preparing every single vehicle before it leaves us, whether for hire or sale. He keeps the warehouse very organised. Although his job sounds glamorous, he is often found operating a pressure washer or driving around the UK on deliveries.

Placeholder Meet the Team

Maggie Abel

Non-Executive Director

Maggie has been a Director of her family businesses for several decades and brings her considerable creative talents to bear on the public face of the company.

Martin Kay

Martin Kay

Chief Engineer

Martin retired from the RAF as a Warrant Officer, having spent 38 years engineering everything from weapons to armoured vehicles. There is nothing he can’t fix.

Paul Cadenhead

Paul Cadenhead

Engineer

Paul retired from the RAF as a Chief Technician working on fast jets. He knows immense volumes of facts about these, none of which he can share. When he is not working, he is an accomplished fisherman.

Sarah Maginn

Sarah Maginn

Digital Marketing Manager

Sarah is a magician. She keeps Electric Wheels on high up in Google search. Nobody really understands how she does it, but her work generates most of our incoming sales enquiries.

Shaun Klyn

Shaun Klyn

Engineer & Driver

Very handy with a spanner, Shaun brings motor trade experience and a fine pedigree in banger racing to the team. He’s also an ace forklift driver and a calm first-aider.

Shirley Hurdle

Shirley Hurdle

Director

Shirley runs the company’s hire business, along with admin and the accounts. She has more than 30 years’ HR experience, and is better organised than anyone else; and probably needs to be.

Simon Garner

Simon Garner

Driver & Salesman

Simon is our newest team member, and will often be found demonstrating our vehicles. He is easily the best-dressed and smartest member of the team.

Stuart Johnson

Stuart Johnson

Engineer

Stuart has the enviable distinction of being almost the only engineer who hasn’t already had a career in the RAF. He is working hard to learn military workshop jargon.

Tony Abel Director Electric Wheels

Tony Abel

Non-Executive Chairman

One of our two founders, Tony brings significant business experience to bear in helping to shape the strategic direction of the company.

The Bridgwater Team

Luke, Adam, Kasia, Tom
