Thomas Mitchell

Operations Director

I officially started working here in August 2010, but I was working afternoon shifts when I finished school at 16.

Mitchells is my family’s business. I’m the 3rd generation, and being part of the business is an opportunity to carry on the name and make my family proud. I love that there isn’t a job I haven’t done, and it’s given me the experience and knowledge to teach and help others across the business. I also love that there’s no limit on what I can achieve, learn or better myself in. Every time I see one of our trucks on the road or in a picture somewhere, it makes me burst with pride.

My role is to manage the operation of the business throughout the day and make sure that everything is running smoothly. I closely monitor reports and figures, and help in any area that may need it.

I’d say my key skills are thinking on my feet and making good decisions, people management, problem solving and working in a team. My goal is to continue to learn and develop myself, to be able to help drive the business forward on a day to day basis.
Outside the family business, I’m a mechanic for ‘Birchall Racing’, a World Championship and Isle Of Man TT winning Sidecar Team. I’m very active and like to keep myself fit, going to the gym and mountain biking. I like to travel and see as much of the world as I can, and I love spending time with family and friends.
