Former EvoBus MD heads new rental division
Close Brothers Commercial Vehicle Solutions (CVS) has launched a new Coach & Bus Rental division. Former EvoBus UK MD, Mike Beagrie, has been recruited to lead the new part of the business. Now MD of the Coach & Bus Rental division at CVS, Mike will lead the initiative to replicate Close Brothers’ leasing and rentals business model in the coach and bus industry.
Mike said, ‘After taking the opportunity of early retirement in 2014, I quickly realised that it was too soon for me to leave the business world behind. Whilst I received a few interesting approaches, the offer from Close Brothers was too enticing to turn down. Their ethos and culture is very much like my own, with a clear focus on building relationships, providing exceptional customer service and employing sectoral expertise to best meet customer needs. In particular, their total commitment to treating customers fairly has always been a core value for me. I’m excited by this new challenge and look forward to bringing the Close Brothers modern merchant banking approach to the coach and bus industry, which I know will welcome the innovative and bespoke solutions we will develop over the coming months.’
