Stuart Brierley Revive! Swindon

After 23 years as chef in the Royal Logistics Corps, Stuart was ready for a change and a new challenge.

Revive! | Stuart BrierleyFrom day one, he knew he wanted to build a business and now, not only does the owner of Revive! Swindon have a fleet of mobile vans; he has a workshop and has expanded his business into the Chippenham territory. 

“Having the opportunity to grow a business was one of the main reasons I chose Revive! They actively encourage and train you to expand and transition to become a business leader.’’

As his business grew, in 2018, Stuart decided the time was right to open a workshop to meet the increasing demand for Revive! Swindon’s services from national account, dealership and retail customers. Now his technicians can work under cover in all weathers and carry out slightly larger repairs in a unit located in a thriving industrial estate in West Swindon.

It’s important to Stuart that his staff share his commitment to quality of work and customer service. His management style is all about leading by example and he is happy to roll up his sleeves and help during busy times.

“Celebrating our success but also learning from our errors has made us stronger. The team at Revive! Swindon are a competitive bunch and are driven to exceed the previous months’ results not only because they can achieve bonus, but they can also see the opportunity growth provides in terms of investment.”

There’s no limit to Stuart’s ambition. He plans to increase the range of services offered to dealership customers with the addition of a specialist wheel van.

Looking longer term he is looking to grow his business in his newly purchased territory, Chippenham and provide career development opportunities for his team members.

“We’ve got a brilliant Revive! team both here and at head office and I believe that there is nothing we can’t achieve together.”
