Welcome to 5 minutes with.. a monthly feature in our blog that introduces you to our team.
First up this month is 5 minutes with our MD, Dominic De Luca.
1. What do you feel is the biggest strength of our company right now?
Simply this….we have the best group of people I could hope to work with. Everyone is engaged with the one and only goal….deliver on all levels, at all times to all our customers.
2. What goal do you have for the company?
I aim to help see us grow to a target of £50M but at the same time for it to be as successful without me as it is with me.
3. What was the path you took to get to where you are today?
Path? I’ve gone down a million paths…many of them blind alleys. The one thing I can hold my hat to is consistency. I’ve turned up for work every day with the same drive I’ve always had and in fact, the drive keeps getting stronger.
4. What have been the biggest challenges you’ve had to overcome?
If I am to be honest the biggest challenge was stopping myself from being a pretty horrible boss/person when I was at work. I could have good days but I had too many days where I was just a very unpleasant person and incredibly hard to work for. Luckily I managed to see what I was some years ago and I think I turned it around! I hope people enjoy me being around these days!!
5. What is a fun fact about yourself?
I’ve been in at least three bands….two playing guitars, one singing. I was sacked from them all (well I sacked myself!) for being bloody awful (especially the singing!)
6. What do you enjoy most about being the MD?
Working with the people here…I just adore and love walking into the building and feeling the “Premvan” ness of it! If that makes sense ?!
