Jack was born in Holland and grew up in Adelaide. He entered the Transport Industry in 1972 at age 18 with the Royal Australian Airforce (RAAF), continuing his career with industry giants like Greyhound and K&S Line-Haul.
He moved on and decided to take a role as a Driver Trainer, quickly promoted up to Training Manager with 1st Fleet Transport and also working as a Training/Compliance Manager with OS/OM Transport. Eventually he started up his own training company, focusing on Specialist Training and Consulting within the Transport Industry. Now working for Yugo Truck Driving School as one of our valued and specialised trainers.
Jack has received the highest qualifications that a person can receive in Transport Training with a Diploma of VET (Vocational Education &Training) & Diploma of TD & D (Training Design & Development), and is a member of various associations within the industry. This level of hands-on experience combined with his extensive tertiary training make him a very professional and knowledgeable person and trainer. He is well known for his in-depth knowledge and guru like advice for those working in the Transport Industry.
Jack loves conducting practical driving lessons but is equally at home standing in front of the class teaching. His passion has always been for training Heavy Vehicle Drivers in the correct and safe ways to drive. It brings him great excitement in his role that he is able to raise young or inexperienced drivers up to meet his own high standards and expectations.
Working at Yugo allows him to drive many different types of vehicles which he loves, but his favourites are Volvo and Macks for the trucks, and Holden HSV Cars and 4X4s for light vehicles. His greatest achievement is his overall standings in the Transport Industry, and having completed both of his dual diplomas in the same year. He likes to relax at home watching shows like CSI or Action Movies, doesn’t have a favourite food because he’s a fan of them all, and is a big car racing fan (particularly the V8’s HRT or anyone who drives a Holden).
