Happy Father’s Day to all the fatherly figures from the QC team! Today, we want to shine the light on our great Ken Martin; we asked Andy what it is like to work side by side with his father, and here’s what he had to say…

What is it like working with your dad?

Having my dad involved in the business has been great for me. Knowing that I have someone with myself and the business’s best interests at heart is reassuring, allowing me and Stephen to focus on other aspects of the company leaving all things financial to him.

 How/why did you end up working together?

Dad has had a keen interest in the business since day one, constantly second checking our figures for us as we grew. Then, as the company grew, there came the opportunity to bring him on board in a more permanent role, and his experience is vital to our continued success.

Do you work well together in a team?

Have you ever seen The Wolf Of Wall Street? Ken plays the role of Jordan Belfort’s dad (maybe not to the same extremities!) He enjoys keeping a close eye on our expenditure and does his best to keep us in line

 What is your favourite project you’ve worked on together?

Much of our ongoing growth is aided by budgets and financial reporting provided by Ken; without this, we would not be able to make the investments we have made.

We would like to send our love to the people who have lost/don’t have a fatherly figure this week. Even though we’re a courier company, we do care about our clients/the people around us, therefore do not hesitate to contact us.
