Jim Latham (Managing Director)
Born in 1958, in Manchester, Jim studied music at the Royal Military School of Music in Twickenham and during 12 years of military service travelled the world as a musician.
On leaving the army, Jim trained as a driving instructor. He ran his own instruction school for eight years. During this period he was awarded advanced driving qualifications, including R.O.S.P.A. and I.A.M.
Jim's skill as an expert driver, backed by his military training, guaranteed a position as senior chauffeur with a company specialising in ground logistics for the entertainment industry and the blue-chip corporate market.
For several years Jim travelled the country, transporting celebrities and senior executives. The company received regular plaudits from their very-demanding clientele, praising Jim's driving skills, smart appearance, courtesy and discretion.
This period taught Jim that his first love is the pride and satisfaction gained from professional chauffeuring to the highest standards.
