Management Team


Sean Dwyer

Sean has over twenty years experience in customer service and sales, fifteen of these in the fuel industry. In 1998, after a two year stint selling bulk diesel for a local fuel distributor, Sean helped launch their fuel card department and three years later, departed to start a similar business. This was the start of what was to become UK Fuel Cards.

His hobbies are dog walking, cooking, entertaining and script writing. He is currently working on a supernatural comedy thriller.

Sean’s outlook on life is ‘to make people laugh and encourage people to succeed’.


Colin Sykes

Colin started in the oil industry selling bulk fuels for Esso distributor in Scotland in 1980, and then left to form his own fuel card business in 1992. This business (Thistle Fuels) was then sold to RED in 1997. He then formed his own European fuel card company and network, which later merged with European Diesel Card. In addition to this, Colin was also the MD of Fuel Card Express, which merged with UK Fuel Cards in April 2011.

His hobbies are numerous, but his major passion is found in endurance horse riding.


Sarah Jackson-Coates

Sarah has over 13 years experience in Sales and Customer Relations, and first started working with Sean over 10 years ago at a previous fuel card company. When UK Fuel Cards Limited was launched in 2004, Sarah came on board and was quickly promoted from her sales role to Sales Supervisor, and then to a full Management role.

Her hobbies are entertaining, photography, shopping, and spending time with her family.


Mark Swanston

Mark is a born and bred ‘Berwicker’ and has been in the industry for over 8 years. He joined Fuel Card Express at the age of 19 and became part of UK Fuel Cards Ltd when the two Companies merged on April 2011. Originally leading a team of just three in its infancy, the Berwick office has gone from strength to strength, tripling the team size and is on the look for additional heads once more.

Most of Mark’s spare time is spent with his wife and three young boys. They enjoy football (wife aside!), speedway and dog walking.

Mark’s philosophy when it comes to life, and work – ‘Get on with it’.
