Mike Revell, Group Plant Director Clancy Plant Hire, is responsible for the successful running of the business.

Mike joined Clancy’s in 1983, when he was appointed Depot Manager of the plant hire division. In time he took on the responsibilities of Plant and Transport Director, being promoted to the board some 12 years later in 1995. Mike has been Chair of the Combined Industries Theft Solutions (CITS) scheme since the mid-90s, and has been instrumental in raising awareness about plant and equipment theft prevention within the construction industry.  He also chaired the Freight Transport Association’s Essential Services Working Group between 2007 and 2009.

Born in Cricklewood, North London in 1947, Mike studied at Northwood College. He did an apprenticeship in the motor industry with Henley’s in Edgware, an early career choice that piqued his interest for all things transport.

When he’s not at work, Mike can be found nursing his petrol head tendencies elsewhere. Another type of transport he enjoys is boats, namely one of the motor varieties that he keeps on the South coast. He held the esteemed post of The Commodore of Chichester Yacht club for two years between 1999-2001. Mike lives in Pinner with his wife Sue, with whom he has a son and a daughter. His daughter, Clare Burgess, works in business development for Clancy Plant Hire.
