With the crash in the oil prices the industry shrank and, along with many others, Marek was made redundant. Aberdeen became a less attractive proposition so Marek moved to England and settled in the Bilston area where he now lives with his partner and their baby daughter.
After a period working as a technician for an independent Peugeot garage, Marek has now started as a technician with Greenhous VW Commercials in Bilston. He joins the service team at the busy dealership just off the Black Country Route.
Marek enjoyed the Scottish countryside spending a lot of his spare time hill- walking. He enjoys travelling around the UK and finding out about its history. He has now started a new hobby in photography which will fit in well with his exploration of the local area and further afield.
