Dai started as a volunteer at Hackney Community Transport in 1989! Prior to that he had been a steelworker, miner and fisherman. Dai became the CEO of HCT in ’93 and with a great team took the organisation from a small local transport provider to a national transport company. HCT provides transport for elderly and disabled people, trains unemployed people to work in the industry, employs ex-offenders, trains people with learning difficulties to travel independently and runs commercial bus services. After 30 years in the role Dai has recently retired.
