D.R. (Dan) O'Donovan joined Carlton
as a salesman in 1937-38.At the Cycle and Motorcycle Show at Olympia
he had enquired if there were any jobs available.
His marketing talents soon established him with the Company.
He appointed a network of dealers to sell Carlton cycles across
the UK and soon the Works needed to expand as the sales increased.
In 1939 he took over the Company from Fred Hanstock. In 1958
his son Gerald joined him on leaving the RAF.
