Mark is the AA’s man of the year
A PETROLHEAD from Clevedon has been crowned the AA recovery patrol of the year for 2011.
Mark Vowles was handed the accolade at a recent AA employee award ceremony in London.
The 43-year-old, will now spend the next year representing the motoring organisation within the motor industry and in front of the media.
The judging began in January with local managers nominating recovery patrols who were then interviewed and whittled down to a final five.
In March, the finalists were put through an intensive day of technical and driving tests, panel interview and mock live TV interviews at the AA’s training centre in Leicestershire.
