New TAS appointments
Jeff Clayton and Meera Rambissoon have taken up new roles at the TAS Partnership. The appointments are designed to widen and deepen the Preston based public transport specialist’s expertise. Jeff was previously Area Service Delivery Manager at First Manchester and latterly assisted Stagecoach with handing the Chester and Wirral depots into their ownership. He has worked for over eight years in public transport, notably for FirstGroup and also for Transdev, where he was a Commercial Analyst in Paris in 2005/6. He was named runner-up in the ‘Young Bus Manager of the Year’ category of the UK Bus Awards in 2012. He joins TAS as a Senior Consultant, which involves delivering a range of solutions to its private and public sector partners.
Meera joins TAS from bus industry alliance Greener Journeys, where she was Campaign Manager. She has over five years experience as a journalist for the transport trade press. She has become a Senior Consultant at TAS and will be charged with supporting its offer to the company’s clients. Her knowledge of journalism and campaign management is expected to allow the company to move into new areas, including stakeholder consultation, liaison, promotional activities and marketing.
Chairman of the TAS Partnership, Richard Armitage, said, ‘I am delighted that Jeff and Meera have agreed to join TAS. Fresh faces and fresh ideas are just what the company and our clients need right now and by adding them to the roster we feel that the company is sending a clear signal about investing in the future.’
