Volvo Bus UK & Ireland Managing Director Nick Page is to retire in December. Nick joined Volvo Financial Services in 1995 from HSBC and was Retail Coach Director between 2006 and 2012 before being appointed as Managing Director, succeeding Steve Dewhurst.

During his tenure, he oversaw the introduction of Volvo electromobility to the British Isles, as well as the launch of the new generation 9900 and 9700 coaches. He also continued Volvo Buses’ support for the Teenage Cancer Trust charity, which has raised over £260,000 since 2009.
“I have had 26 incredible years within the Volvo family, with my nine years leading the team at Volvo Bus being particularly memorable, Nick said. “I have been extremely fortunate to work in a very special industry that plays an important — yet often unsung — role in society and the wider economy. It is an industry where innovation and change are part of its DNA, and I am proud of the role that Volvo continues to play in shaping and delivering positive change for our customers and passengers alike. With a talented and experienced team at Warwick, a great dealer network and some very exciting product and service developments in the wings, I feel that now is the right time to pass on the baton to the next leadership generation. I will naturally be staying on to the end of the year to ensure that the handover process will be as smooth as possible.”

Volvo said an announcement on who will succeed Nick will be made later on in the year.
