Sally Wray, Managing Director, GoHire Group
Elected to the HAE Tools, Plant and Equipment Board 2022
I have been in the industry for almost 8 years and have been on a very steep learning curve. I purchased a tool hire company in 2015 in Hull and have worked very hard to grow it. I joined HAE very soon after becoming the owner of the company and have retained our SafeHire certificate for several years now. I recently set up a second depot in Hull and have also acquired a depot in Grimsby. My starting turnover was £140K per year and has now grown to £1.7million.
Earlier in my career, I worked as a Legal Executive and have experience in researching and interpreting legal statutes. I also feel that being relatively new to the tool hire industry, I come to the table with a fresh pair of eyes. It is my view that the tool hire industry must retain its emphasis on good old-fashioned customer service but would benefit from more innovation in both services and products. I am passionate about giving a voice to the independent hire companies who don’t have the advantage and access of the vast amount of resources available to the multi-branch nationals.
On a personal note, I have been working very hard to grow the business and strive to ensure very high standards. I am now keen to become more outward-facing within the industry and would welcome the opportunity to be more involved with HAE.
