Philip Norwell, Stagecoach South East’s Managing Director, has announced he’s to stand down after more than four decades in the industry.
Beginning his career in Peterborough in 1974 as a driver and worker director at National Bus Company subsidiary Eastern Counties (later taken over by Stagecoach) Philip became Marketing Officer for Stagecoach Cambridge in 1997.
Following on from his first appointment at Stagecoach, Philip took on the role of Commercial Director in 2002, before becoming Managing Director of the operator’s South East division in 2013.
Mark Threapleton, Stagecoach UK Bus Managing Director for England and Wales, remarked: “I would like to thank Philip for the sterling work he has done over many years to deliver improvements for bus passengers across the east and south east of England in particular.
“He has made a valuable contribution to the business and we wish him well in the future.”
Philip Norwell added: “I have reached a milestone in both age and achievements and have decided it is time to move on. I have worked with some fantastic people over the years and it has been a real privilege to have been involved in some of the innovative projects we have delivered together and the many improvements we have made for customers.
“I wish the team in the South East every success going forward.”
