Burke CPC History

Chris as an inspector

Born in St Clerans, Craughwell, Co. Galway, Chris’ background in transport began in 1972 when he emigrated to London and commenced his career with London Transport as a Bus Conductor. He graduated from the Polytechnic of North London with Membership of the Chartered Institute of Transport (the former name of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport).

In 1985 he returned to Ireland and joined An Post. In the early nineties he became a Post Office clerk, but transport was never too far away for he served as a Transport clerk alongside an excellent team with responsibility for the management and maintenance of 750 Post Office vehicles in the west of Ireland. 1986 saw Chris complete the Certificate of Professional Competence in transport management at GMIT (formerly Galway RTC).

The Beginning of Burke CPC
