The tuition I received at Peterborough College was a very strong foundation of automotive mechanics and the industry where I now work as Regional After Sales Manager, covering Texas, California and the South-West for Aston Martin North America. The lecturers were hugely inspiring to me and I owe a huge debt of gratitude to the College in launching me on a career in automotive spanning 30 years.
