Vehicle hire firm recruits world-class snooker referee

Vehicle hire firm recruits world-class snooker referee

A man who is a world class snooker referee has come out of retirement and pocketed a new job with an expanding vehicle rental firm.

Rob Wright is 59 and retired five years ago but has just been recruited by Sutton Maddock Vehicle Rental, based near Shifnal.

Previously a housing officer at Wrekin Housing Trust, Rob, who lives in Shifnal, is now helping to run the firm’s office and delivering vehicles.

However, he also has a passion for snooker and is currently a part time World Snooker referee, overseeing games from amateur up to top-flight professional matches and is also a keen player in his local league.

“It’s great to be bucking the trend by expanding our workforce and had no hesitation in taking Rob on as – like many employers – we are finding that older people are reliable and flexible,” said Tom Spickernell, managing director of Sutton Maddock, which runs one of the largest rental fleets in the region, supplying a range of vans, cars, MPVs, mini buses and trucks up to 7.5 ton.

“We are a family-owned firm which was started by my grandfather almost 40 years ago so we value the wealth of experience that people of Rob’s age can bring to the job.

“Our business is growing and his appointment will help us to continue to provide excellent customer service.”
