Meet the team!
The Directors - Catherine and Stephen Bunn - Having camped and caravanned since young, both Catherine and Stephen have a passion for campervans and motorhomes. Catherine established Highland Campervans in 2007 with a small hire fleet, but the business has developed over the years to become the specialist centre in the Highlands for Motorhomes and Campervans. Out-growing its first premises, Highland Campers moved to Kerrowaird (an old dairy farm) in 2010. After some renovations and updates, the old milking parlour was transformed into an accessories shop, whilst the cow barn was re-born as an NCC Approved Workshop. The farm-yard area was landscaped and the NCC Approved Motorhome Dealership took shape.
General Manager -Daniel McRae - Daniel originally from Invergordon joined the team in May 2018 after returning from the middle east where he was COO of a large chain of health clubs. Having been in the leisure and hospitality industry since the age of 17 he comes with a background in accounts and has managed a variety of businesses over the years. He has joined the team to help the business grow through some exciting expansion and development plans. Daniel is also keen to ensure we continue to look after our customers the “Highland Way”. Daniel loves cooking in his spare time and is excited about exploring bonnie Scotland using the Highland Campervan Fleet.
Hospitality Co-ordinator - Jo Page - Jo joined Highland Campervans in March 2015, assuming responsibility for all aspects of our hire fleet. She previously owned and ran a 4 star guest house in Inverness, so has excellent experience in the Highland hospitality industry. Jo is delighted to welcome hire customers to Highland Campervans and assist them with every step of their holiday. Jo is keen to get away in the hire fleet vans when possible to gather as much experience so she can enhance her recommendations and trip suggestions for our many customers.
Hire and Retail Assistant - Lynda McQueen - Lynda started with Highland Campervans in April 2017. Lynda comes from a varied work background which started with stage management, and along the way she has worked with children but never animals! Prior to joining us her most recent experience has been in retail. Lynda is really looking forward to meeting and greeting customers, and helping those who have booked one of our vans head off on their motorhome adventure.
Sales Co-ordinator - Michael Taylor - Michael joined Highland Campervans in December 2013. Prior to his role here Michael was responsible for managing the Law and Philosophy Divisional Office at the University of Stirling and before that he spent 19 years in the Financial Services industry. Michael, his wife and young son have happily taken the opportunity to try out the Highland Campervans hire fleet. They have owned campervans and motorhomes, having bought their own vehicles from private sellers, so are well aware of the perils associated with looking and buying!
Sales Advisor - Ray Atkinson - Ray joined Highland Campervans in October 2016. With a 25 year background in media, most recently working in marketing and advertising, Ray brings a varied and eclectic skills set to the role. Camping holidays with a wife and two daughters who enjoy their home comforts means that Ray lays claim to having invented Glamping. Now that his girls are off to University he’s looking forward to taking his camera into the countryside to explore the world of campervaning as well as matching customers with the perfect campervan for their own adventures.
Service Co-ordinator - Derek Gordon - Derek joined the team at Highland Campervans in August 2017. He brings with him a variety of skills and experiences learned over the last twenty years working locally as a freelance photographer and more recently in fruit merchant and food production industries, along with a life-long love of the outdoors and campervans (VW’s in particular) - which fits ideally with his new role assisting caravan, campervan and motorhome users with repairs and servicing, over-seeing the smooth operation of Highland Campervans’ service department.
Senior Service Technician - Daniel Madge-Miall - Daniel joined Highland Campervans in March 2014 after moving from Oxfordshire. He has over 12 years experience in the motortrade from bikes to trucks and now enjoys learning about all the new challenges involved in working with campervans and caravans. He has attained various qualifications since starting with Highland Campervans to endorse his skills and transfer his prior knowledge to the motorhome sector. Daniel continues to head away on training courses for particular products and applicances, ensuring customers' vehicles receive the best possible service.
Vehicle valeter - John Fitzsimons
The Cat - Hades - Chief mouse-catcher and guardian of the workshop. Hades joined the team in 2010 and works very hard at keeping small creatures away from the farm buildings. Adopted from a rescue centre who were struggling to find a home for his 'anti-social' tendencies, Hades joined the business with his bed in the barns. He has since decided that Kerrowaird Farm and Highland Campervans is his ideal home - and his anti-social tendencies have (almost) disappeared! Hades is an outdoor cat and is not supposed to be inside the reception or campervans - please feel free to nudge him outside if he sneaks his way in!
Neil Hillyard - Accounts Advisor. Neil joined the team in summer 2011 to help Catherine and Stephen keep a financial eye on the growing business. With huge investments in the workshop and shop, Neil looks at the numbers behind the scenes and checks that each area of the business is healthy and growing steadily. An invaluable asset to any business!
Summer Intern - We offer a paid summer placement for an undergraduate looking to gain valuable work experience prior to completing their degree.
