Transport2, the firm behind the Kura platform (incorporating CoachHire.com), has announced the appointment of Godfrey Ryan as CEO.

Godfrey is new to the coach sector

Godfrey brings two decades of experience across senior commercial roles, having worked in high growth, technology-based businesses and multinational organisations in the air transport, telecoms and legal sectors.

Godfrey played a leading role in the digital transformation of the aviation sector during his time with UK company Waviatech, helping it evolve from a startup in 2005 through to its acquisition by AerData B.V. in 2010 and subsequent acquisition by Boeing in 2014.

Commenting on his appointment, Godfrey said: “As an employer, and parent, I can relate strongly to Transport2’s mission to create safer, greener shared transport for workplaces and schools. The safeguarding of our children and employee well-being in a COVID and post-COVID world makes safe, secure transport more vital than ever. Transport2’s expertise, technology and infrastructure are well positioned to meet these needs and create new opportunities for our operator partners as they recover from lockdown.”

Andrew Hall, Chairman at Transport2, said: “Godfrey’s appointment is a huge milestone in the ongoing evolution of Transport2 as we grow across the education and corporate sectors. We’re extremely excited to welcome Godfrey on board and look forward to working together to help the business achieve and surpass its tremendous potential.”
