17/11/2011

Transport group Stagecoach has announced two new appointments within its bus operations in the UK and North America.

From 1 December 2011, Edward Hodgson will take over as Managing Director, Stagecoach West Scotland. His appointment comes as current West Scotland Managing Director Bryony Chamberlain takes up the post of Director of megabus.com based in North America.

Edward Hodgson returns to the UK after himself spending three years in the US in the role of Director of megabus.com where he successfully developed the rapid expansion of the inter-city and inter-state megabus.com network in North America. Prior to that, Edward was Commercial Director at Stagecoach South.

Bryony Chamberlain joined Stagecoach in 1996 as a graduate trainee. After progressing her career within the UK Bus Division, she joined Coach USA in 2006 to help develop the first megabus.com services. In 2009, Bryony returned to the UK and took up the post of Managing Director, Stagecoach Bluebird and Highlands before becoming Managing Director, Stagecoach West Scotland in 2010.

Stagecoach UK Bus Managing Director Les Warneford said: "I would like to welcome Edward back to the UK Bus Division and thank Bryony for the valuable contribution she has made here over the past few years. I wish them both every success in their new roles."

Dale Moser, President and Chief Operating Officer of megabus.com in North America, added: "We are looking forward to Bryony rejoining our team in North America, and
working with her to further expand the very popular megabus.com service in
the States. I'd also like to thank Edward for a job well done here and wish him all the best for the future."
