Management team

Sam Merison – Director of Academy

Sam’s background was initially in sustainable transport; however, with the obvious links and crossovers with road safety, he was soon steered in that direction. Sam has a particular interest in teenage road safety and his work with one such group resulted in them receiving a Prince Michael International Road Safety Award for secondary school initiatives.
