Tony Gibson, our senior Trainer has been in the Recovery Industry for nearly 40 years. He started in 1972 by setting up TG Motors in one of the busiest areas in the country at the time (pre motorways) because of the petro-chemical industry along the Thames corridor.

He was a pioneer with people like Bill Jackson, Mike Saward & Chris Sawyer in the development of new recovery techniques. Tony’s speciality was developing Air Cushion Recovery. Having always trained his own men he became a trainer for the Institute of Vehicle Recovery and was on the IVR Committee for a number of years.

He did his first Train the Trainers course with the AA in Nottingham in 1997. Followed by an ITSSAR Instructors course in 2004. This was updated to an ITSSAR Cat. 1 Level 2 Trainer in 2007. He passes on his life long enthusiasm and love of the industry to everyone he trains.

Michael Gibson, Trainer, almost knew how to recover a vehicle before he could walk, being the son of Tony Gibson. Michael had recovery installed into him as first nature. He did his apprenticeship at Ford Motor Company gaining mechanical and electrical knowledge to ONC Level.

He worked for a busy London Recovery Operation in different Managerial positions but still managed to keep active in heavy commercial recovery. During this period he was a Major Incident Manger and had many years developing new techniques in the use of Rotators leading up to the planning and damage free lift of the 7/7 bombed bus at Tavistock Square.

Since joining Judgepower Training Services in Feb 2008 he has passed virtually all of the VR Modules and has qualified as an ITSSAR Cat 1 level 2 trainer. He is fully qualified to pass on his wealth of knowledge and experience to trainees.

She has been responsible for the admin work for Judgepower since its conception in 1994 but since retirement from Fords in 2006 has become increasing more involved in the day to day running of the office. No longer having the backing of HR, IT, Accounts and Legal Departments she is having to learn new skills to meet todays ever changing business requirements
