As we continue to grow, so too does our Chevin family

Meet our new team members


Topher Dykes – Implementation Consultant  

Having spent seven years as an Implementation Engineer for a City based FinTech company, the opportunity to support customers within fleet management appealed greatly to Topher.

Outside of work, when not hiking around the countryside, Topher has a keen interest in growing succulent plants, reading Japanese poetry, home-brewing and reading.

Ben Robbins – Apprentice QA Engineer 

Ben describes himself as being technically minded, with a  keen interest in IT and computers, and looks forward to writing code with us. He enjoys breaking things….and lucky for us, is very good at fixing things too!

Ben is an avid Dungeons and Dragons player, a 12th-century reenactor and enjoys reading in his spare time.

Richard Adams – Developer  

Richard joins us having worked in development roles for close to ten years. Having a young family, he made the decision to find a role much closer to home and lucky us – he came to Chevin!

Living a stone’s throw away from our head office in Belper, Richard skateboards to work! His other hobbies include climbing, entertaining his children, playing and writing music and is a keen DIY fan. His one and only vice? He can’t stop himself from buying musical instruments!

Rachel Marsh – Implementation Consultant  

After graduating, Rachel worked for an MRP/ERP software company in Rotherham for several years before discovering Chevin. It was our recent recruitment drive due to company growth that made us appeal to her with the additional bonus of a scenic drive through Derbyshire each day to our premises.

Rachel enjoys walking, visiting National Trust properties and discovering the best places to eat cake! She recently completed a charity skydive and although almost changing her mind mid-flight, describes it as one of the best experiences of her life.

Matthew Hyman – Database Developer 

Matthew has over 20 years of software and database development experience and joins us to focus his skills within a committed development environment and culture. He thinks our coffee tastes great too!

He plays bass in a band in addition to a bit of synth too and has an interest in astronomy and astrophotography. Matthew is a keen snowboarder, mountain biker and bakes great chocolate cakes – a good few cake fans here only too willing to confirm this one!


Henri Coolen – Software Support Analyst 

Henri joins us with an ambition of improving his knowledge of SQL. He is looking forward to supporting our FleetWave users to help them make the most out of their systems.

In his spare time, he enjoys working with both computers and mobile technology, always being eager to learn new things.


Brooke Benkert – National Account Manager 

Brooke is no stranger to fleet management having over 6 years’ experience within public utilities. She enjoys working within a fleet and saw this as an opportunity to support other fleet managers in making the most of their operations.

Time outside of work is spent with her family in addition to following sports, particularly baseball, softball and F1. During her studies at the University of Evansville, Brooke played D1 softball where she played against both Jennie Finch and Cat Osterman!

Welcome to Team Chevin!
