New area managing director for Arriva Yorkshire, Jon is one of the group’s youngest directors, having started on the First Bus graduate management programme in 2008.

Regional managing director Nigel Featham remarked: “It’s great to get the final pieces of the jigsaw in place for the region.

“We now have a strong directorship team, helping and guiding a great senior management team, capable of delivering the service our customers want and expect.

“It’s an exciting time for the industry and a very exciting time within Arriva North East and Yorkshire right now.”
