Howard’s Travel Group has appointed Gareth Hughes as its Operations Manager. Gareth told CBW the position had become essential, due to the growth and evolution of the company. He will be responsible for the smooth day-to- day running of Howard’s Travel and Springfield Bus and Coach Ltd based in Warrington, Cheshire.
Gareth said: “I’m very pleased to have been appointed to this role and with the backing of our MD Ian Howard we can take the companies to the next level. I have been working closely with Ian for three years, since he bought Springfield.
“My role will include growing the business and possibly diversifying into other niches which are not catered for in our area. We also want to work more closely in association with local authorities and working groups involving other operators, capitalising on new ticketing systems and generally ensuring the day to day smooth running of the operation.
“We currently have authorisation for 11 vehicles between Springfield and Howards, but we hope to increase this in due course.”
