Meet your team here at Loads of Vans in North Cheam, Surrey... 

  • Stephen Shadrake – Sales Executive

    Meet Stephen Shadrake – Sales Executive

    I love being busy. Despite working full time, being a new dad, running two sport clubs and managing a weekly lads night out, I always take one evening a week to keep up-to-date with my beloved Red Sox. I’m a huge fan of the baseball team and it is a little more entertaining than cricket! I have an American approach to my customers, as having spent many months there I appreciate it is service, service and more service that helps retain them. I speak multiple languages and love to cook.

  • Jenny Aldridge – Sales Executive

    Meet Jenny Aldridge – Sales Executive

    I love my job at Loads of Vans. I'm fun and chatty, and enjoy my home life and my hobbies. I've been married 25 years and have two boys, a granddaughter, a dog, and a cat. I enjoy teaching skiing on the dry slopes in my spare time. In my spare time, I research family trees and have been on Radio Oxford talking about it. I am currently renovating my place and would love to own another property, as I love painting and decorating. I also love gardening and swinging in trees on the go-ape courses, swimming, fast boats and the gym. One of my dreams is to visit Australia.

  • Rob Lee - Business Manager

    Meet Rob Lee - Business Manager

    My life is split between work and family. Both are challenging and I am not sure which one causes the most sleepless nights! I am a football fan - supporting Crystal palace - and also enjoy watching rugby and Boxing in my spare time. I hope one day that I will get to the MGM Grand in Las Vegas for a mega fight, but I can't promise once in the casino I will make it to ringside! 

  • Pete Jeffrey – Sales Controller

    Meet Pete Jeffrey – Sales Controller

    I have been part of the motor industry in one form or another for more years than I care to remember. A busy life in and out of work keeps me from bettering my golf handicap. I’m a lifelong Liverpool supporter and I have two grown up kids who are also my best mates - but are still a drain on the wallet!

  • Frances O'Halloran – Admin Supervisor

    Meet Frances O'Halloran – Admin Supervisor

    I work here part-time which allows me to bring up my two children. I have worked here for 12 years now, so I must be due parole anytime soon!! I'm often told I am ultra efficient, so I enjoy looking after the team by making sure all the administration for the department is top notch. My hobbies are spending time with family and friends, being a taxi service for the kids, going to the races, but my ultimate favorite hobby has to be wine tasting!

  • Maria Wilson - Director

    Meet Maria Wilson - Director

    I juggle bringing up my four children alongside running the largest van business in the UK; always the multi tasker! I love people and I'm passionate about treating my customers how I want to be treated. My hobbies are belly dancing on holiday (don't ask), skiing (faster after gluhwein), camping and supplying vans to my husband who is a wholesaler (and in case you're wondering, it does help to know the boss!) 

  • Robert Blake - Sales Executive

    Meet Robert Blake - Sales Executive

    I've been in the motor trade now for 16 years now. I lead a busy life with two children; although my eldest daughter is studying at Reading University. When I'm not at work I'm usually with my family enjoying some quality time together. When I'm not with them, I can often be found at a motor racing circuit - normally Brands Hatch. Motor Sport has been a big part of my life because I've been attending race circuits for almost 45 years!

  • Tania Johnstone - Sales Manager

    Meet Tania Johnstone – Sales Manager

    I love people. I'm chatty, bubbly, friendly and won't let you get a word in edgeways! I've been selling vans since the tender age of 19, so a grand total of 16 years of being ‘The Van Bird’. I'm a Spanish speaker and my hobbies are reading What Van Magazines, Flamenco dancing, socializing, going to the theatre, and renovating houses. I’m often found in the pub or in Puerto Banus at weekends.​
