You will normally find Sharon sat at her desk at our Doncaster site engrossed in a spreadsheet, assisting David our Fleet Manager in keeping Sterling compliant.
And constantly nagging the drivers for paperwork to be correct!
When not at work you will find her out walking in the countryside. She has climbed two of the Yorkshire Peaks and her ambition is to do the ‘Three Peaks Challenge.’
The driving force behind the business, our MD and co-founder has a wealth of sector knowledge. He is massively client and performance focused, and knows it’s a marathon not a sprint (coincidentally he ran London a few years ago, so knows a thing or two about maintaining performance). Man Utd mad, he has attended nearly every European away game over the last 10 years, but we think it’s just an excuse for a holiday.
He wears his heart on his sleeve and is passionate about everything he does (except making anyone a drink).
Sharon is a co-founder of the business and Sales Director. Sharon’s wealth of knowledge and opportunistic flair has been a fundamental driver in the company’s success. Identifying valuable emerging markets, usually overseas in a hot climate and by the sea are her speciality.
Horse riding at dawn on the beach is her favourite pastime.
Our office glamour puss also sometimes known as Calamity Jane, as she is usually in the middle of some kind of drama. She is well known for her driving skills and has a real pride and passion to see the business succeed to its full potential.
An outdoors girl at heart you’ll usually find Scherelle pitching up a tent and stoking her fire with a glass of wine somewhere nearby.
Darren has been threatening to join the team for only 5 years, his fierce loyalty to the Company and his role will enhance the quality of the team massively over coming months.
Already a granddad yet only looks old enough to smoke, Daz supports the team and his clients to such an extent he once worked 28 hours in one day.
The newest member to the team, Bradley has settled in perfectly. A dark horse with a lot of skills to offer we are looking forward to seeing him develop his role within the business, progressing his career to it’s full potential.
This ex jockey may be little in stature but he’s big in brains and confidence, and he’s here with us now under starters orders.
John Cook is our whizz kid that keeps our Accounts Team ticking all the right boxes.
With a background in Transport and a wealth of knowledge of Accountancy, he strives to ensure the business successfully manages its short and long term financial goals.
A typical accountant always wanting more, proven by the fact he has 2 sets of Twins at home!
Mark has two kids that keep him on his toes when he's not out installing for Sterling.
If he's not doing either of these...He spends his spare time down at Elland Road Stadium watching
Leeds United or in the summer stood out on cricket field playing cricket.
Shayne is Mr Google - ask him anything about life death and everything in between he’s your master of the knowledge of useless facts. Good job he’s in the warehouse where he entertains himself most of the day, in between looking after the welfare of our customers goods in a methodical and organised manner.
The tallest member of the team, with the nickname 'Melman'. She is often sporting a bruise on her forehead from the top of the door frame, which obviously keeps her extremely alert to perform her duties in the accounts department. She is a whiz with figures and has an acute attention to detail, making her an important asset to the accounts team.
The queen of PODS and the little sister to the same day crew.
Organised and methodical, she has set a great structure to support the team. With her attention to detail and IT skills, Chloe is the girl for the job. Fun, bubbly and always greets you with a smile on her face.
Cara is our new business huntress and a Sterling Services advocate as she was a customer back in the 90’s.
Once she’s found a prospect, she will persist till they are a Sterling Services customer.
She is also our real life Princess Ariel of the office !
Jack is one of Sterling Services helpful, young and handsome Transport Planners.
Jack is a popular team member and can put a smile on anyone’s face.
He is a keen Man United Fan and gym enthusiast, where he likes to go to keep in shape for the ladies. This brings us on to where you can also find Jack when he’s not working hard at Sterling or in the gym….Tinder!
He’s usually there on a mission swiping with some great stories to tell about his adventures; be sure to ask!
We are all just a bit concerned about stunting the growth of his right thumb.
Carmel or “Super Granny” is our most experienced member of the Same Day Team.
She knows more extra-curricular vocabulary than Gordon Ramsey, and has more ingredients in her drawer than he has in his kitchen. Ask her what’s on the menu today!
This pocket rocket could easily win any eating competition, and when it comes to the ability to provide customers with that special touch then look no further than Carmel! She turns the roads to gold with her talent in the department and provides the extra special touch to our services.
Daniel 'Apple Bobber' Longstaff.
A real family man and proud daddy, who when he's not busy with his family he’s playing daddy to his same day team. Multi-store projects are his speciality, which has proved Danny to be a key asset to Sterling’s success.
Once in a blue moon Danny is allowed out, and you’ll find him either on the dance floor in one of his fancy dress creations or at Man United. The boy thinks he can drink, but alas he can’t and has proved to be a lightweight!
“David is our Fleet & Compliance Manager and resident Mr Blakey”. He puts the C into Compliance, keeping everybody on their toes with a friendly smile.
David is a globetrotter with a passion for aviation and airports. He has visited 84 countries and countless airports across the world, with a story to tell about each and every one of them (he’s a dark horse).
Since joining he has become hooked on Starbucks and takes great delight in his daily Mocha, he just hasn’t managed to get his hands in his pockets yet to pay!!
Alex is a hardworking and key member of the Express Haulage team here at Sterling. She is also the most dog obsessed person we know. Her campaign to have an office dog (a black Labrador called Sterling!) is nothing short of relentless.
By 8am every day Alex is either talking about, or eating food! 80’s music is a must in the office too. Alex doesn’t let work get stressful but just in case it does, she has Harriet the stress pig to help out! She is great fun to be around and is a pleasure to work with.
John Tommo Thomson is the leader of Operations.
With a wealth of knowledge in the transport industry, gathered through blue chip companies over many years, Tommo has revamped our systems to ensure our development and growth continues.
He has unlimited energy, often cycling 40 miles each way to work in his Lycra and feasting on a foraged diet of kale, wheatgrass and seaweed. This ultra-healthy mean machine is our very own Duracell bunny.
Adam is a great person to work with. He is fun, hardworking and eager to help where he can. Adam is new to transportation planning, but he has taken to it like a duck to water.
Adam has a tendency to call people by completely different names, for example, he calls his girlfriend Bligh, which he has done for the last 11 years. We don’t actually think he knows her real name.
Even though Adam was brought up in Wakefield, he has been brought up to support Everton.
Ryan Walsh is our very own Silver Fox of the Amazon Transport Office with his silvery greys now coming through, although he is deliriously happy to flaunt his newly appeared ‘distinguishing features’.
Ryan is without doubt the ‘Bear Grylls’ of Sterling Services and likes nothing more than to protect the staff from Spiders and Moths, and if he’s not too busy doing that, he puts the ‘plan’ into transport planner and loves being the top planner of Amazon… that’s if he isn’t still half cut after the ‘Open Mic’ night.
Sheridan is a new addition to the ever growing express haulage team. In the short time we have known him, we have found out that he loves going to the gym but his love of food is greater.
Sheridan has given himself the title of best eyebrows in Sterling. His perfectly threaded eyebrows are the first thing you see when you look over your computer screen, and he always gives you a cheeky eyebrow rise.
