Gary Hubbard, director of logistics at Geodis Calberson, on Kylie, helicopters and reindeer

You've got 25 words to describe your career to date. Fun, diverse and challenging. Logistics is mission critical to everything we do in everyday life.

How do you describe your job to your mates? Trucks, sheds, boats and planes. I'm the guy who ensures you get what you want, when you want and at a price you want, so you don't have to worry.

What is the worst job you've ever had? Never had a bad job only bad managers.

What is the least rewarding part? When the high levels of service and diligence of your staff are not appreciated by your customers.

If you didn't work in grocery where would you work? Jet ski hire on a very hot beach somewhere tropical.

What's your best interview tip? Be relevant, passionate and interesting.

Where do you hope to be in five years? Until I was 30, the answer was "retired". Now, who knows, this industry really is dynamic and five-year forecasts are little more than an indulgent extravagance.

If you were allowed one dream perk what would it be? A good box at Old Trafford watching my two boys playing for MUFC, with travel by helicopter.

What's your nickname? Hot Shot Hubbard striker for our village team.

What's your favourite movie and why? Loved the 80s stuff. The Breakfast Club, St Elmo's Fire etc and am also a not-so-secret sci-fi fan.

Do you have any phobias? Yes, people who believe the world owes them a living.

If you could pick a celebrity to join your staff who would it be and why? Kylie. You need a reason for this?

What would you request as your final meal? Something basic and English, meat pie, chips and baked beans all smothered in thick gravy. Oh, and a really good bottle of red wine to wash it down, followed by a large glass of Louis XIII over crushed ice.

What's the weirdest thing you've eaten? I worked in Asia for a few years, so you get used to 'interesting' dishes. The saddest was probably reindeer, which I ate whilst working in Norway my boys think it was really mean of me to eat Rudolph.

What luxury would you have on your desert island? Super-large cruiser with helicopter landing pad on the back and jet skis nothing too ostentatious, though.

What animal best reflects your personality and why? A lap dog. They are friendly and loyal with most people, with a sense for sniffing out the untrustworthy. I love lazing in the sun but am snappy when disturbed.
