Stagecoach Manchester MD to retire
Managing Director of Stagecoach’s Manchester bus operation, Elisabeth Tasker, is to retire after 20 years’ service in the bus industry.
Elisabeth said: “I’m very sad to be leaving Stagecoach and have thoroughly enjoyed my time leading the team in Manchester. However, as with many people, the impact of Covid-19 has caused me to re-think my priorities and I know that now is the right time for me to retire and be able to spend more quality time with my family in Wales.
“I would like to pay tribute to the whole team in Greater Manchester, particularly for all their work during the past few months, which has been challenging for everybody. They’re a great team and they have made coming to work all the more enjoyable over the years.”
Elisabeth will continue to lead the team in Manchester whilst the process is underway to appoint a successor.
Elisabeth joined Stagecoach in 2000 as Operations Director at Manchester, having previously held a number of management roles, both in the heavy goods and bus industries. She then went on to be Managing Director of Merseyside and South Lancashire in 2011, before becoming Managing Director of Stagecoach Manchester in late 2016. She was also named in the Top 50 Northern Power list in 2017.
