Laura Sides – Director, Head of Operations
Shortly after graduating from Nottingham University with a BA Honours in Industrial Economics in 1999 Laura relocated to Marbella to fulfil her dream of living and working in Spain. A fluent Spanish speaker she easily found work in the then thriving real estate sector before going on to create her own real estate company specialising in properties at the top end of the market. After several years in real estate and a sudden down turn in the market Laura then worked for a well-known global private bank for several years, gaining further qualifications and becoming a member of the Chartered Institute of Securities and Investment.
With an already proven track record in business and financial administration and a natural ability when dealing with high net worth individuals and the luxury end of the market she could not resist it when an exciting and challenging opportunity presented itself to move into the luxury car hire industry where she worked for two years at Europe Luxury Car Hire before taking over the management of the company with her business partner Martin Reay in August 2013.
Martin Reay – Director, Sales & Business Development
Before he moved to Spain in 2010 Martin built up and ran a reputable personal training business for ten years in the UK, the success of which was not only due to his experience and knowledge but also his ability to build relationships with people on any level. His clientele included city executives, well known athletes and celebrities, all of whom hold him in high regard due to his professionalism, discipline and integrity.
Martin has always had a love of speed, excitement and living life on the edge. He is a keen skier, skydiver, has always owned race bikes and is passionate about supercars. Taking over the management of Europe Luxury Car Hire with his business partner Laura Sides was a dream come true and allowed him not only to feed his own passion but also to use his people skills to build networks and to spend every day talking to clients who share the same passion for all things fast.
