I am Dave Curran and I have been at Oaktree Farm since day one. I have been a manager for over twenty five years but mostly for BMW. I enjoy working with all types of people and find them interesting. My great passion is motorcycle racing but because I'm old and broken I can't race anymore so tend to watch and read about it now.
I am very passionate about our customers having a voice and try to help them in any way I can to achieve what they want. I like to see them with happy faces.
