Meet The Team

Jason Kliszat - Managing Director

From 2012, Jason has taken over as director of Overlander. Managing all aspects of the business, Jason has helped Overlander to attain the ISO9001 accreditation in July 2013, and is developing the business day by day.

John Kliszat - Chairman

John took control of Overlander in the late 90’s, already a keen modeller, looking for a new challenge related to his passion, radio controlled flight. Although John is heading into retirement, his continued involvement within the Lithium construction, and technical aspects of Overlander, helps us improve our services and products as we grow every day.

John now has more time to spend pursuing his passions; which include his motorbikes, cars, fishing on his boat off the Whitby coast, and of course spending time with his family!
