Anthony Wilcock Revive! Sussex Coast

Anthony Wilcock owner of Revive Sussex Coast gave up a career in the city in 2012 to become his own boss. Now the former stockbroker has six vans on the road in his Revive! Sussex Coast territory and runs his own static site.

Revive! | Anthony Wilcock"One of the things that attracted me to the Revive! franchise was the quality of training and support provided by head office. Revive! has its own Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) accredited training centre and helped set the standards for the IMI qualification in SMART repair.

I am committed to ensuring that all my technicians have the best possible training and attain the IMI. This qualification is still quite rare within our industry and being able to tell customers that we are trained to such a high level definitely helps boost levels of customer confidence.

Running a mobile vehicle repair business is a complete step-change from wealth management. From a physical point of view, it is certainly more demanding than stockbroking. But at the end of the day I get real satisfaction from seeing the results that our team here achieve. There is nothing like the independence of working for yourself."
