Aaron Smith


Transport Manager

 

 

I joined TH Clements in November 2016 as Transport Manager. 

I was in the RAF for just over 10 years previous and gained lots of experience including driving artics all over the world in convoys. I also operated Fuel Tankers, Aircraft Tug driving and was a rough terrain container handler operative and put these skills to the test in Iraq and Afghanistan on 3 separate occasions. I can teach off road driving and I'm a DSA Approved qualified HGV driving instructor. 

 

I enjoy most sports including Football and Boxing which are my favourites but I'm happy to watch or take part in pretty much any sport. I like to spend time with my wife and children and hate to admit that i love pottering around in our garden and cutting the grass!

Favourite Quote -  I often say 'Look at the bigger picture' when explaining things to people

 

Interesting fact about me -  I once received an award from Princess Anne. When I met her she knew all about me, my name, where I worked, where I had been and what I had achieved. It all felt a bit surreal!
