General Manager Bill Tanser

Roberts Travel Group, based near Coalville, Leicestershire, has announced the appointment of Bill Tanser who has recently joined the company as General Manager. Bill had previously spent 27 years with Woods Coaches of Wigston, where he began his career as a service driver, before moving through the ranks as coach tour driver, traffic manager, and ultimately General Manager in 2013.

“As much as I have enjoyed my long career at Woods, the opportunity to join a fast growing and highly respected company like Roberts Travel Group was too good to miss,” Bill said.

Perhaps best known as a coach holiday and day trip operator, Roberts Travel Group also operates a busy private hire division and the Leicester Park & Ride, as well as several scheduled bus routes and home to school transport throughout the region.

“Gaining the services of such an experienced and talented individual as Bill at a time when our company is going through a period of rapid growth is a huge advantage for us, and we look forward to welcoming him aboard,” said Roberts Travel Group Managing Director Jonathan Hunt.

The company operates a fleet of over 80 vehicles and employs in excess of 120 staff.
