At Health and Transport Services (HATS) Group, we pride ourselves on our ability to maintain high-quality standards in all of our services. And with the appointment of a new Director of Transport & Fleet Quality Standards, I’m delighted that we can continue to provide the best transport services possible.
A newly created position that we have been searching to fill for over two years, we are very happy that Michael Burke has joined the HATS Group in the new role. A qualified City & Guilds HGV Fitter, Michael also holds a Certificate of Professional Competency in both Road and Passenger Transport Management.
Michael joins the HATS Group from An Post (National Post Ireland), at which he held the position of Transport Manager; overseeing 63 branch managers, 1,200 drivers and a fleet of more than 2,800 vehicles in 200 locations.
In his new role as Director of Transport & Fleet Quality Standards, Michael is responsible for overseeing all aspects of our vehicle compliance, assuring our high standards are kept throughout the company.
After being able to find someone of Michael’s background and skill, we at the HATS Group are very much looking forward to the on-going development of the quality of service we deliver to our customers.
Michael recently commented on the new role saying “I am thrilled to be offered this opportunity. I had spent the previous ten years working with An Post during some of the most difficult economic times in memory. With the support of some very able staff we were able to lower costs whilst maintaining the highest service levels expected from the Irish Post Office.
“I expect to be able to use some of this experience to drive down costs at HATS while enhancing the quality of service we deliver to our Service Users and Regulatory Bodies. As an approved CPC Holder and tutor by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, I will be looking to develop a highly focused team around me, and am confident all stakeholders will see the benefits of HATS committing to this project.”
