Nick P announcement
(L-R: Nick, David & Robert)

We are delighted to announce that in July we welcomed Nick Parham to the Quick Reach team as our Managing Director (South).  Nick’s appointment serves as a significant milestone in our journey towards growth and expansion at Quick Reach as next year (2024) we’ll celebrate our 10th birthday.


A Recipe for Success


“I am delighted to join Dave and the team at Quick Reach.  We worked together many years ago before he set up the business with John, and I am now looking forward to supporting him in rolling out a comprehensive depot network in the South of the UK.  Bristol will be the QR’s first step into the Southwest, followed by further strategically located depots to satisfy the growing customer base in the next 18-24 months.”


“QR has the recipe for success.  Great people culture, great vision and most importantly a strategy to make this business the largest National Independent in the UK over the next 5 years.  There is funding, a young & dynamic fleet, and an excellent growing customer base.  This coupled with great, experienced people and local hire desks is a key.  My experience of QR’s customer service levels is exceptional so far with its local approach and central support to ensure it is easy to trade with.  I’m ready to get started!” Nick Parham, Managing Director (South).


Nick arrives with a great wealth of experience working at an executive level within the industry.  His expertise will play a pivotal role in driving our business growth within the Southern region, especially now, as we prepare to open our seventh depot in Bristol.

“I’d like to extend a warm welcome to Nick Parham as our Managing Director (South). His proven track record and agility in business align perfectly with our vision for innovative solutions and continuous improvement.  John and I previously worked with Nick, and I’m confident that his leadership will strengthen our commitment for excellence and propel Quick Reach to new heights in South.” David Barton, CEO.


Robert Dillon will continue in his role as Managing Director and will focus on our Northern region.  Since joining us in 2020, Rab’s unwavering dedication and exceptional leadership has been instrumental to our success.  He will ensure our Northern depots continue to flourish and that our customer’s receive nothing less than outstanding service and support.


“I’d like to express my welcome to Nick Parham into the Quick Reach family.  Having worked with Nick previously I know he will be a welcome addition to the team.  Nick brings a wealth of experience and knowledge of the industry that will help us push into the next phase of our growth.  Quick Reach is in an exciting time as we push forward with the opening of our 7th depot in Bristol. Nick will spearhead the opening of this depot as well as looking after the South.  I look forward to working closely with Nick to further progress and improve the business.” Robert Dillon, Managing Director (North)


The Dream Team


Nick and Robert will work closely together to ensure seamless operations nationally. They will work collaboratively to create new opportunities for our team and streamline our services to deliver unparalleled solutions to our customers.


We are filled with optimism for the rest of the year as we add an essential piece of the puzzle to our network of depots.  The Bristol depot will solidify our position as a leading independent powered access provider, and we look forward to creating a dynamic team who reflect our ambitions.


“We are extremely excited about opening our new branch in the Southwest and servicing existing and new clients.  We have assigned 4 million pounds of capex to this development with our partners featuring next generation powered access that provides a clear focus on our commitment to becoming a greater more sustainable business. My late brother always set his sights on the southwest, so this strategic move is close to our hearts as we keep his memory as an integral part of our everyday endeavours and success.” David Barton, CEO.


We’d like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has contributed to our success so far and wish Nick a very warm welcome to the Quick Reach family.
