Dave Boorman

Head of Distribution 

What led you to FM Conway? 

Years ago, I was looking for a new, more challenging role and a newly created Credit Control position at FM Conway was advertised. I applied through an agency and was successful in securing the position.

How did you get into your division? 

After a short spell away from FM Conway I was looking to rejoin the business and was offered a position in the newly formed Resource & Planning department. After successful stewardship of looking after vehicle logistics for the surfacing division, I was offered the opportunity to form a transport planning team to help drive efficiencies within the transport division. 

Within your specialism, what do you see as a growing trend over the next 5 years? 

Safety will remain paramount within the transport sector. With the accelerated advancements in technology, I believe automated roads and vehicles will advance significantly over the next 5 years.

How has your career progressed since joining FM Conway? 

My career has progressed hugely since joining FM Conway. From beginning my Conway career as a Credit Controller to working my way to a Finance Manager and then to Resource Manager, I gained a great understanding of FM Conway and its operations. Following a short break running my own business, I returned to FM Conway where I now run my own team as the Transport Planning Manager.

What motivates you?

I am motivated by making a difference. Whether that be from improvements to efficiencies, reducing costs or providing a better service for the business activities.

What would you be doing if you didn’t pursue your current career? 

I would love to be a chef, food excites me. I also enjoy playing with cars so perhaps something to do with mechanics or engineering as I always need to know how something works. 

What do you enjoy doing outside of work? 

Cooking, restoring and building cars, spending time with family and DIY.
