Friday 13 April 2012
First Bus, Britain’s leading bus operator, has appointed a new Project Director for its Scottish operations. Paul McGowan joined the company at the start of April from the Abellio Group where he was latterly its European Bus Strategy & Business Development Director.
Neil Barker, Regional Managing Director for Scotland, said: “Paul will be responsible for driving progress on a range of programmes which are designed to underpin a new way of doing things in our depots and ultimately provide benefits to the customer.
“I’m pleased that in Paul we’ve been able to secure someone who knows our business well, has a proven track record and is results driven.”
Paul, who has previously held several Managing Director positions at National Express, Abellio and FirstGroup commented: “I am very pleased to be returning to FirstGroup and feel that the knowledge and experience I’ve gained throughout my career will bring benefits to the business in Scotland.”
Paul will be based at First Glasgow’s depot in Larkfield and will regularly visit First’s other operations in Scotland.
