New President is Martin Dean
Martin Dean, Managing Director of Bus Development at the Go-Ahead Group, has been appointed CPT President for 2018.
Martin began his career in the transport sector as a graduate trainee with London Transport and before joining Go Ahead as MD Bus Development, held roles with FirstGroup and with National Express rail.
“I am honoured to have been appointed CPT President for 2018,” said Martin. “I look forward to working with CPT staff and members across the country to continue improving services for customers and communicating more widely the benefits of bus and coach travel to the national and local economy. I should also like to pay tribute to my predecessor, Ian Luckett, for his commitment to CPT during 2017.”
CPT Chairman, Ian Morgan, said: “I am very pleased that Martin has agreed to take on the role of CPT President for the coming year. Martin has a wealth of experience in the industry and through his role at Go-Ahead has made a huge contribution to the work of CPT during recent bus policy developments and through its Committee structure over many years. Along with all CPT members and staff, I am very much looking forward to working with Martin over the next 12 months.”
