Alan Hunt is the Managing Director of Schmitz Cargobull UK and Ireland – the first trailer business to support Transaid as a corporate member and the first company of any kind to pledge five years’ support. Under Alan’s direction, Schmitz Cargobull UK continues to go from strength to strength, with an ever-increasing focus on how technology can provide complete cold chain visibility.
Alan also brings considerable engineering expertise to our board from previous roles at Finning CAT, most recently as Head of Sales for Commercial Marine and Oil & Gas.
Based at the company’s headquarters in Warrington during the week, Alan is a keen cyclist who successfully completed our London to Paris challenge in 2017 and can regularly be found clocking up road miles up and down the UK. It is therefore fitting that he was the first rider to sign up for our Land’s End to John O’Groats Challenge 2020, where he will travel the entire length of the nation, an epic 972-mile adventure! He can now often be heard corralling colleagues, industry peers and anyone else he can find into joining him for the ride, which of course we wholeheartedly endorse!
