Phil Stockley moves to CityFox Group

Mr Stockley joins from Wellglade

The Bristol-based CityFox group has announced that Phil Stockley is to join as Executive Director.

He will oversee the group’s existing taxi operation in Bristol and Bath and other commercial growth and growth by acquisition, including into the bus sector.

Mr Stockley joins from The Wellglade Group, parent of a number of operators in the East Midlands and South Yorkshire including Trent Barton.

Earlier this year it was announced that Mr Stockley would join Transdev Blazefield as Marketing and Commercial Director (routeONE, News, 1 May), but this is no longer the case.

“The CityFox Group has a strong interest in entering the bus market in Bristol and plans to develop both our bus and taxi businesses there and elsewhere,” says Group Managing Director Rhys Hand.

“Phil will be involved with taxis, and he will assist the business in acquiring more taxi companies as well as bus operators,” says Mr Hand.

Mr Hand adds that at the moment, CityFox Bus runs shuttle services, and operated a route in Bristol on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. It also supplies drivers to other operators.
