Darren Ward started his mechanical apprenticeship in 1985 - so it is no surprise his career has grown to see him run and own JAX Tyres Mona Vale after a long stint at JAX Tyres Kensington. As soon as the final school bell sounded, Mr Ward knew that a career in motor mechanics was the right choice for him.
Mr Ward said the best part of owning his own JAX Tyres was "the people". "In this business you get to work with a great bunch of people and plenty of their business owners in the same industry as you who you can really relate to," he said. "You also get to drive the business as your own boss, which is very satisfying, and means you can tailor your services to suit the needs of the customers in your area." When he is not working, Mr Ward can usually be found relaxing on his boat with a bottle of wine and some fresh seafood. Being a Northern Beaches local helped with the change to JAX Tyres Mona Vale. "I would love to say I catch the fish myself, but it's much easier sometimes to go down and buy some fresh catch and just spend the day on the boat relaxing," he said.
