Matthew Arnold becomes commercial director for Stagecoach Kent and East Sussex
Stagecoach has appointed Matthew Arnold as commercial director of its Kent and East Sussex operations. Arnold started his career in the transport industry as a scheduler with London Country Bus Services in 1984. Previously commercial manager at Arriva Southern Counties, he joined Stagecoach as business development manager in early 2016 following a period with Kent independent Go-Coach. Matthew is the current regional chairman for CPT London & South East.
“I’ve joined Stagecoach at an exciting time; yes, there are some uncertainties in the industry, but the south east, and in particular east Kent, continues to present opportunities for network enhancements with many significant commercial and residential developments either already underway or planned,” says Arnold. “We have seen substantial group investment in this our centenary year with 85 new buses and a new, purpose-built depot at Herne Bay and are well placed to support the growth in the local economy.”
