As a Birmingham-based business, we are very proud to support the Commonwealth Games through our VP of Software, Simon Collingridge. Simon has been a volunteer tier 2 driver for the games.
His 8-hour shifts involved driving one of the 100% electric cars from the fleet to transport various dignitaries and team managers from one venue to another across the city.
As a keen rower in his spare time, Simon’s highlight was a 40-minute journey transporting Dame Katherine Grainger to the NEC venue. He carried passengers from over 17 different Commonwealth countries; many conversations he will not forget in a hurry!
Birmingham has truly come alive over the last 10 days, it’s been fabulous to see the city dazzle, congratulations to everyone involved. Well done Team England finishing in second place overall with 176 medals. Finally, well done Simon for volunteering and being part of the action.
