Mark Luck MANAGING DIRECTOR
Mark is the third generation of Lucks to run our company, its founder being his grandfather of the same name. Marks father Ken raised him with the specific intention of one day taking over the company, and he instilled in him at a young age the love of lorries and of our industry.
Ken wanted to ensure that Mark had a well rounded knowledge of every aspect of the company from accounts to mechanics, doing apprenticeships and Saturday jobs, Mark grew up attacking and enjoying all tasks from admin and invoicing to shadowing Ken in his managerial role.
Whilst still a 15 year old school boy mark earned his Transport CPC qualification. He left school at 17 and joined the company full time, starting off in the workshop and becoming a competent fitter, with an intimate knowledge of the lorries, then became a driver of both tippers and grabs before moving into the office. He worked closely with his father and his trusted colleagues until 2018 when sadly Ken passed away. Mark then stepped into his shoes as Managing Director, Mark then went on to earn his WAMITAB licence.
Under Mark's stewardship the company has continued to grow with and expanding fleet and an additional recycling yard in Swanscombe. Mark hopes to continue this trend until he can one day pass the reins onto the next member of the Luck family.
Guy Archbutt DIRECTOR
Like Mark, Guy is another life long member of the Mark Luck LTD family, his father Chris helped establish Mark Luck as the company it is today and Guy grew up in and our lorries and our ethos.
Guy joined our office staff as a school leaver at 16 and gained an extensive education in the field and workings of transport. At the age of 22 Guy became a driver where he made a name for his self as conscientious and dedicated worker, often out working and out performing his older colleagues, and developed a deep understanding for the life and trials of the tipper driver.
At the age of 30 guy was drafted into the office with the eventual aim of taking over from his father Chris, he worked under and with Chris and the rest of the team whilst attaining his CPC managerial qualification. Guy took over as Manager of Mark Luck on his father's retirement and has enjoyed a busy but fruitful rein so far.
