Meet the team
Claudio Di Maggio – Company Director & CEO, Senior Diagnostic Technician
Specialist subject: Diagnostics & Fault Finding
Claudio has many years of motor industry experience and has been at the helm of Perfect Touch since 2000 when he started out as a mobile technician. Claudio’s father was a motorcycle mechanic and it was growing up around engines that ignited Claudio’s love for engines. Claudio’s father removed a carburettor from a kid’s motorbike so Claudio wouldn’t be able to ride it, but seeing Claudio careering off down the road on it made him see he hadn’t recognised Claudio’s talent for rebuilding anything mechanical! Claudio loves a challenge, especially when he gets a job that can’t be repaired anywhere else – and then repairs it
Best driving experience: driving at 200mph on the Autobahn in Germany in a bright yellow highly customised Porsche 911
Favourite car: Radical R in full race mode with no restrictions – a car you have to drive
Claudio currently drives a Citroen Berlingo which helps him to keep to the speed limit but he is lucky enough to drive more exciting models in the course of his work
Gabs Di Maggio – Service, Maintenance & Tuning Manager, Client Liaison, Senior Technician
Specialist subject: Diagnosis, Modifications and Improvements
Like his brother Claudio, Gabs developed a love for engines from a very young age. He has been at Perfect Touch since 2002 after spending many years in the industry at various companies. He enjoys being able to help customers decide the most effective way to improve and modify their cars – a small leak that needs attention to an engine rebuild or a remap. So many years’ experience has given Gabs an encyclopedic knowledge of marques, their capabilities and potential.
Best driving experience: a recent Cadwell Park Track Day
Favourite car: Porsche 993RS
Gabs currently drives a BMW M3
Daniel Brooks (aka Brooksy) – Senior Technician
Specialist subject: Responsible for engine builds and Vanos work
Brooksy enjoys working at Perfect Touch because of the great atmosphere and the banter! He has always loved cars and even as a child loved taking things apart – he started with pushbikes and progressed from there! Brooksy has worked at Perfect Touch since 2008 and because of the variety of cars and types of jobs that come through says no two days are the same so he never gets bored! Brooksy loves off-roading and likes nothing better than taking his modified Range Rover out, finding a mound of mud and getting stuck in
Best driving experience: taking his modified Range Rover off-road
Favourite car: Mini
Dan currently drives a Golf GTI Mark 5, a 1985 Classic Mini and his modified Range Rover
Ben Pinnington – Senior Technician
Ben has worked at Perfect Touch since 2010 and enjoys working on the different varieties of cars that come in which means he is constantly learning and improving on his skills. At Perfect Touch all the staff have the same interests so there is plenty to talk about, exchanging ideas and opinions and he gets satisfaction from making people happy when they leave with their cars in better condition than when they brought them in. Ben loves anything fast – for example his Nissan Skyline R32 GTR (about 400bhp!).
Best driving experience: the drive home to Herts from Devon when he bought his Nissan Skyline
Favourite car: Lexus LFA
Ben currently drives a Skyline R32 GTR
Antony O’Grady – Senior Technician
Specialist Subject: Antony works on clutches, suspension upgrades and gearbox rebuilds
Antony arrived at Perfect Touch in 2015 and loves working on the array of makes and models of cars that come through the doors, making each day varied and interesting. From the age of around 10 years old Antony got the car bug when he helped his dad customise his car.
Best driving experience: driving a Lamborghini at a track day and also being taken around the track in an Arial atom
Favourite car: Porsche 911 GTRS
Antony currently drives a Honda Civic Type R
Sam Di Maggio – Technician
Sam has worked at Perfect Touch since 2014 and loves working here because of the fun atmosphere and variety of work. Although it’s hard work, everyone pulls their weight, supports each other and friendships are strong. Sam’s love of cars started early when he discovered Formula 1 – the speed, the roar of the engine and excitement at the pit stop, all these fuelled his love of cars. He enjoys every aspect of his job as each day is different with new cars coming in with various problems and he enjoys learning how to fix them
Best driving experience: driving a BMW M Series at a track day
Favourite car: Ferrari F12
Sam currently drives a BMW 1 Series
Mat Loveday – Service Manager, Senior Technician
A recent addition to our staff, Mat comes to Perfect Touch on the back of many years’ experience in the motor industry. Citing Perfect Touch as one of the best places he’s worked at, he says he is enjoying the change of role and the banter in the garage.
Best driving experience: various Track Days
Favourite car: Porsche 911 Turbo
Mat currently drives a BMW 325i
Jo Boronte – Office Manager
Jo has worked at Perfect Touch since 2015 and has always had an interest in cars and how engines work. She loves working at Perfect Touch – everyone is very easygoing and the days are a lot of fun. She feels that Perfect Touch is also a grown-up environment where highly specialised work is carried out by a group of people whose collective knowledge is staggering. Meeting clients is always interesting as Perfect Touch clients come from all walks of life. As the only female in the garage, life could be challenging in this traditionally male environment but at Perfect Touch everyone has a relaxed and welcoming attitude and Jo knows the guys see her as a valued member of the group
Best driving experience: as a passenger with Gabs – insane
Favourite car: Aston Martin DB10
Jo currently drives a SEAT Alhambra which is still waiting for the valet that was promised…
