Tribute paid to “dedicated” ambulance fleet chief

Peter Mann

Peter Mann, corporate fleet manager for the London Ambulance Service, has sadly passed away following a 17-month battle with cancer.

The 61-year-old, who was married to Paula, was well known in the fleet industry, joining Dixons in 1984 as workshop supervisor before becoming transport manager in 1990.

He went on to become fleet manager for DSG International (DSGi) in 1993, before becoming transport operations manager in 1999 and general manager transport for UK and Ireland in 2003.

He left DSGi in 2008 for Wolseley UK, where he was transport operations manager, before joining Vega Logistics in 2009 and the London Borough of Enfield in 2010, where he was fleet compliance and training manager.

He joined the London Ambulance Service in 2011 as corporate fleet manager. “Peter was always happy to share his knowledge and assist with challenges,” said Jo Brice, fleet admin manager for the London Ambulance Service.

“He had a knack for quickly understanding complex problems and would willingly offer solutions. He was a dedicated and highly valued member of our organisation. 

“He will be sadly missed by all of his friends and colleagues at the London Ambulance Service.”
