Ben Harris is executive director of Queensland-based specialist vehicle hire company FleetCrew. He joined iQ for a quick Christmas Q&A….
What are your goals and expectations for your organisation and industry in 2021?
We are optimistic about the year ahead and are ready to support our customers with the supply of our rental vehicles.
Name one regulatory burden that could be changed to make your day easier.
No specific regulatory burden I can think of needing to be changed, however generally we are looking forward to government announcements to be rolled out, particularly those in relation to much-needed infrastructure.
How will you be spending the Christmas/New Year period?
We hire vehicles for recreational purposes, so Christmas across our branches is a very busy period. But I’ll get away for a road trip, visit family and friends and support local businesses at some point.
What is the worst/funniest Christmas present you have ever received (or given)?
Borat-style mankini. Needless to say that one was regifted (without use).
What is your best/worst Christmas cracker joke?
Not a Christmas cracker joke but one I read recently and committed to the dad joke memory file: Q: What did the beach say to the ocean at high tide? A: Long time no sea.
(One for Fraser Island next time I visit with the kids …)
