“Hull is a great place to live and work”, says our Colin.
Name: Colin Moody
Job title: Managing Director
A little bit about yourself…
I am proud to say I am born and bred in Hull. After leaving school I joined Hull City AFC as an apprentice footballer. My professional career may have only lasted 2 years but I had a great time and brilliant memories of being there, apart from the day I was told I would not be signed on! Shortly after that I went for an interview with a transport company and was told I could have the job if I signed for the manager’s Sunday league football team. A year later I moved to Neill & Brown and 38 years on I am pleased to say I am still here and I am very proud to be the first non-Brown Managing Director.
HULL: It’s taken a long time but with the help of 2017 UK City of Culture 2017, Hull is getting recognition and is a great place to live and work.
HOBBY: I try to make time and go to the gym and I like to get a round of golf in once a week – weather permitting!
FOOD: All Italian food
BOOK: I don’t always have time for reading but I have enjoyed a few of Dan Brown’s, including; ‘Inferno’ and ‘Angles and Demons’ as well as Jeffrey Archer’s short stories.
SPORT: I’m interested in all sports but I now particularly enjoy watching the Rugby Union Six Nations games.
PLACE: We have been taking short breaks to Tenerife for the last 25 years; it’s great to get away for some nice weather and relax for a few days.
Who do you most admire?
Bobby Moore, the West Ham and World Cup winning England Captain in 1966.
What is your earliest memory?
I have always woken up early and as a young boy I would go the newsagents and sit on the papers outside the shop until they owners arrived to open up.
What three things would you like with you on a desert island?
I’d take my wife Debbie and my two children, Jace and Abigail, although they might not be too impressed!!
