Jarvis leaves Stagecoach East Scotland role

Andrew Jarvis, managing director of Stagecoach East Scotland, is leaving the company after ten years with the business. Jarvis, who has more than 20 years’ experience in the bus industry, joined Stagecoach in 2006.

He was appointed operations director for Stagecoach South and became managing director, Stagecoach Bluebird, in May 2010 before taking up his current role in July 2013.

“Andrew has made a strong contribution over the past decade with Stagecoach, helping drive forward our strategy of investment in greener, smarter bus travel,” says Robert Montgomery, managing director, Stagecoach UK Bus. “The awards Stagecoach East Scotland has won over the past few years for its bus and express coach services are testament to the high standards Andrew has fostered across his team and we wish him well in the next stage of his career.”

Stagecoach has started a recruitment process for a new managing director of the East Scotland regional company. In the interim, the business will be overseen by Robert Andrew, Stagecoach regional director for Scotland. Jon Oakey, the company’s Scottish regional finance partner, has been appointed acting general manager and will manage the day-to-day operations, reporting to Robert Andrew.
