We’re pleased to announce the appointment of Chris Birkby as the new Managing Director for DriveForce.


Chris Birkby

Chris brings with him a wealth of experience from the recruitment sector, gained after serving for a number of years in the Royal Navy. Chris loves the fast paced, target driven environment combined with the buzz and team camaraderie that comes from working in recruitment.

Chris has a solid track record of building national relationships and working with large businesses to develop high volume accounts and recently decided it was time for a new challenge within a people focused business, where he could use his experience of relationship building and managing teams to drive a business forward.

Chris believes he has joined DriveForce at the perfect time. DriveForce is proud to be part of People Solutions Group (PSG), the UK’s largest group of recruitment and training companies, and Chris is excited to become a part of the PSG family.

“It is an exciting time for DriveForce and People Solutions Group . Both are growing and the fact that PSG is a family run business with a strong family ethos was a big attraction. DriveForce is a business that is pushing for growth and moving into becoming a full logistics offering. Operations Director, Erica, has built up a brand that prides itself on service delivery and I am excited to be part of that future working with Erica and the team.”

Matthew Reddy, CEO of People Solutions Group, is delighted to welcome Chris to the team and is excited about the future of DriveForce as it continues its journey of growth.

“DriveForce has opened three new branches this year and there is further growth planned for 2018. The appointment of Chris as Managing Director is key to that continued growth, DriveForce is increasing its services to include driving and warehouse thus enabling the business to offer a complete logistics solution to our Blue Chip clients.”
