Phil Baker retires

MD of Bakers Coaches of Biddulph, Stoke on Trent, Phil Baker, has retired after nearly four decades at the forefront of the business. The company was founded by Phil’s father, James Baker, in 1936 and from humble beginnings as a garage and chauffer business it has progressed under Phil’s stewardship into what has been described as one of the top 40 coach companies in UK. Today’s operations include 23 private hire coaches, 29 local buses and a program of holidays and day tours. Phil, who recently turned 61, has taken the decision to retire after selling the business last May. He leaves behind a senior management team consisting of Operations Manager, Andy Fish and Sales and Marketing Manager, Stephanie Dean. Phil said, ‘I feel it is time to allow the new shareholders and management team to take the company to the next stage. It has been a lifetime of commitment which I have thoroughly enjoyed, meeting and serving my customers from hugely diverse backgrounds and from many countries from around the world.’
