Colin O'Brien

Managing Director I have worked my adult life in the motor industry, starting off in my fathers motor dealership parts dept, then moving through each Dept. Taking over the management of Newbridge Car and Van Rental in 2001 offered a new challenge, particularly throughout the recession. Our (then) small rental company came out fighting the other side. Since developing & rebranding as "Go Rentals" we have gone from strength to strength, achieving new heights every year through our superior team providing incredible customer service while we continue to expand.
