The Go-Ahead Group has appointed Richard Stevens as the new Managing Director of Plymouth Citybus.

Richard is currently Operations/Commercial Director for Stagecoach South West. He will join Go-Ahead on 1 May and will succeed Andrew Wickham who was appointed Managing Director of Go South Coast at the end of last year.

David Brown, Group Chief Executive for Go-Ahead said: "I am delighted that Richard will be joining Go-Ahead to lead Plymouth Citybus. He has more than ten years' senior experience of working in the South West and significant knowledge of the bus industry. He will play a key role in further developing Plymouth Citybus' reputation as the community's customer-focused, local bus operator."

Before joining Stagecoach in 2004, Richard was Operations Director for First Devon and Cornwall. Prior to that he held a number of managerial roles in Devon and Cornwall and began his transport career in 1990 as a bus driver.

Richard said: "I am looking forward to taking up my new appointment with great enthusiasm, and to working with the Plymouth Citybus team and local stakeholders to deliver improvements to passengers."
