Stagecoach announces appointment of new managing director for Yorkshire bus operations

Stagecoach has appointed Matt Davies as managing director, Stagecoach Yorkshire.

Currently Stagecoach Manchester operations director, Davies replaces Paul Lynch who was appointed to the role of Regional Director North last month.

Davies has 21 years’ experience in the bus industry, starting his career as a management trainee with Lincolnshire RoadCar in 1995 after completing a transport management degree at the University of Northumbria. He joined Arriva North West in 1998, becoming general manager in 2000. From 2006 he held two operations director posts with First Yorkshire West and First Manchester before joining Stagecoach Manchester as operations director in 2012.

Robert Montgomery, Stagecoach UK Bus Managing Director, says: “I would like to congratulate Matt on his promotion. His experience as an operations director over the past 10 years will stand him in good stead to take on the opportunities and challenges of his new role and I have no doubt that he will continue the good work, particularly in the area of partnership, done by Paul Lynch in Yorkshire to deliver even better bus services for customers in the area.”
