Kevin left school when he was 15 years old, he started work at the stock exchange but soon decided he wanted a change of career after viewing an advert for motorcycle couriers he stated work at Mercury despatch in 1972 riding a Yamaha, registration number LUV 47K.

He stayed with Mercury until 1975, until he had the pleasure of meeting the great Sammy Rose. The he carried on riding his motorbike before graduating to driving a blue Sherpa van. Kevin was known to all at Point to Point as 'SWIFT HALF' and if anyone has seen his famous blue hard back A-Z they would know why.

At every page he had the grid reference that referred to the nearest pub and the name of the pub. After a few years he started as a controller with Point to Point, Surya, the managing director at the time soon noticed his potential as a sales man and his excellent management skills. Kevin began running the operation side of the business alongside Steve gaining new customers and building lasting relationships which some of which are still his customers today. The business went from strength to strength. After Surya's sad death, Kevin bought the company from Surya's wife, and continues to run it today.
