McPherson retires as Go North East finance director

After nearly two decades in the position, Go North East finance director Colin McPherson is retiring. He joined as finance director in 1998.

“Go North East is unrecognisable now compared to when Colin joined us in 1998,” says Kevin Carr, managing director at Go North East. “The bus industry has changed monumentally over the past two decades and during this time he has helped ensure we had the finance and resources to remain competitive and current, while our turnover has continued to increase.”

McPherson adds: “I’ve had a fantastic career and am very proud of everything the company has achieved over the past 19 years. It has been exciting to be part of the senior management team of such a progressive company, that really puts its heart and soul into providing great customer service, all while playing such an important role in the local community.

“Not one day at Go North East has been the same, thanks to the ever-changing face of the sector and the challenges it brings. I’m sad to leave but excited to start a new chapter in my life.”
