Michael is a professional chauffeur who has being driving for businessman and entrepreneur Theo Paphitis for several years. He has always enjoyed driving and feels very fortunate to have a career doing something he is passionate about.
In the working week he drives a Maybach 62, 5.5 litre twin turbo V12. The 62 stands for 6.2 metres, which "is fun to manoeuvre round Greater London during rush hour". The car is equipped with internet access so Theo can use it as an office while he travels around the UK.
Michael’s first car for driving Theo was a Mercedes C220 cdi and now he drives various cars including a Mercedes SL63 AMG which is the best car he's ever driven. He also has a full HGV licence along with his fork lift instructor badges.
His proudest moment was raising funds for comic relief by pulling the Maybach for a mile along the Mercedes-Benz test track with two friends.
"A classic business shoe that is as comfortable to wear as the Maybach is to drive!"
