MDEL appoints Adrian Hide as their driver risk management partner


MDEL Fleet Management is an independent fleet management company based in Chesterfield. Founded in 2017 they manage more than 500 vehicles for clients across the UK and Ireland.

Challenges Faced

MDEL needed an expert to support their clients with their driver risk management services, things like risk assessments, driver safety policies, driver safety handbooks, and training as they didn’t have the resource or expertise in-house.


MDEL needed someone they could trust and rely upon to deliver the right support, advice and expertise to their client base.

How We Helped

Following a recommendation from someone they had worked with previously, MDEL brought in Adrian to support their clients.

Adrian has now been working with MDEL since April 2020, supporting their clients with all aspects of driver risk management, helping them to introduce a robust driver risk management programme, which includes the provision of online training for any staff who drive as part of their work and for Line Managers, a special face-to-face workshop designed to help them understand and manage their driver safety responsibilities on behalf of the business.

Managing Director Mike Cuckson said: “Adrian is now essentially an extension of the MDEL team. He’s filled a gap that we didn’t have the expertise in-house to deliver. He’s been working with a number of our clients and that number is growing. We’re really pleased he was recommended to us; he’s been fantastic to work with and the feedback we’ve had from our clients has been fantastic. We look forward to working with him in the future.”

Adrian added, “It’s been a pleasure to work with Mike and his team at MDEL and of course his clients. It’s refreshing to work with such a forward-thinking business, Mike totally understands the merits of good driver risk management and his clients positively embrace all of the recommendations we put forward, I’m very much looking forward to supporting Mike and his clients during the coming year”.
