Go-North West last week confirmed the appointment of Nigel Featham as its Managing Director.
”I am confident that Nigel will bring invaluable and inspiring leadership to the team in Manchester,” says Go-Ahead Chief Executive David Brown
Nigel joins the newly-formed Manchester operation from Arriva, where he led the North East, Yorkshire and Yorkshire Tiger bus operations over the past decade.
David Brown, Chief Executive of the Go-Ahead Group, said: ”We are delighted to welcome Nigel to the business with the regional expertise and customer focus that he brings.
