Patrol of the Year 2006

AA salutes Cheshire based patrol of the year

David Macintyre, AA patrol of the year 2006 Cheshire man David Macintyre is on the road to national prominence after being named AA Patrol of the Year 2006.

David, from Runcorn, joined the AA last year, after having run a repair business and MOT testing station in Frodsham for 23 years.

Public face

In his new role, he will spend the next year as the 'public face' of the AA, representing the UK's largest motoring organisation within the motoring industry and before the media.

Selection process

AA Patrols from throughout the UK were put through a gruelling selection process including a rigorous technical test, a mock TV interview and a panel interview. David scored highly in all categories and impressed the judges with his technical knowledge and his customer care at the roadside.

David, 43, is married with six children – two of his own, and four foster children. Since 1997, he and his wife have fostered 17 children, some with extreme challenges in their lives. He also enjoys golf and fly-fishing.

110 percent

David says he is "extremely honoured" at the chance to represent one of the UK's leading companies, and pays special tribute to the support he has received from the AA team in the North West. "I'm really looking forward to the year ahead. I always put 110 percent into everything I do and I'll certainly be giving my all as Patrol of the Year."

Excellent service

Road Operations Director Steve Dewey says: "David is a shining example of the standard of our employees. Delivering excellent service is the absolute priority for the AA and it's great to be able to recognise this in our staff."
