For more than 15 years, I have worked as a business journalist and over the past decade I have specialised in all areas of motoring, especially business motoring, such as company cars and vans.

I spent much of this time working on Fleet News, the industry newspaper for company car and van fleet decision-makers, starting as a reporter and working my way up to editor, which gave me a detailed knowledge of every aspect of the world of business motoring.

In addition to Fleet News, I have also worked as editor-in-chief of Fleet Van, editor-in-chief of Fleet News Europe, editor of The Cost, a vehicle running costs magazine, and editor of Fleet Business Europe.

I have also written a number of specialist industry supplements. Subjects covered include contract hire, daily rental, risk management, green fleet management, taxation and European fleet management.

Currently I specialise in market research, working with Sewells Research & Insight on a number of automotive projects.

Since 1998, I have also been the author of the FN50, the influential industry guide to the 50 largest leasing companies in the UK by funded fleet size.

I have also edited the content for Fleet News events in the UK and Europe, including producing promotional videos.

Other industry titles I have written for range from Accountancy Age to the Financial Times.
