Dave Wallace, Publisher

Dave Wallace


Background: Having most recently spent 8 years publishing fleet titles, David’s experience extends to two decades driving products within the architectural, automotive, design, facilities, lighting, office and power sectors, working with national and global brands and media agencies to deliver multi-channel campaigns.

Spare time: With three young children, most of David’s spare time is spent with family and he can be found spending most weekends at their caravan (sorry, ‘Holiday Home’!) on the Norfolk coast.  A self-confessed MAMIL (Middle Aged Man In Lycra), David also tries to get out on his road bike when the opportunity presents, and is in training for a couple of events during 2017.

Favourite sport: Football (Liverpool fan) & Cycling – with equal passion

Four-car garage to meet every need: BMW 530d saloon, MK3 Ford Capri GT4, Ferrari 458 Italia, Ford Galaxy (as it’s pretty much the only thing big enough to get the kids, dog and mother-in-law in at the same time – without upgrading to a Light Commercial Vehicle!)

Paul Barker, Editor

Spare time: When not being terrorsised by his two small children, Paul has a season ticket at his beloved Brighton & Hove Albion, and is also a keen cyclist, currently in training for the 100-mile Ride London event. He also enjoys motorsport and spending time with the family. And chocolate. And beer. And pizza.

Favourite sport: Football (see wasted hours following Brighton around the country!)
