The sky is the limit for new
Kinchbus General Manager

Sue Blount is the new general manager at Kinchbus, managing the 35-strong fleet of buses and around 100 drivers, engineers and support teams.

Sue joined Kinchbus sister company Trent Barton in 2008 to train as a driver and went on to manage the bus station concourse at Derby before becoming service delivery manager first in Derby and then at Langley Mill.

As well as ensuring the Kinchbus network of services is run as efficiently and punctually as possible, Sue will oversee the skylink Derby route.

Sue says: “I want to keep progressing professionally and I want Kinchbus to keep improving what we do for our customers, making sure we stay as Loughborough’s finest. The sky is the limit.”

Sue did office jobs when younger and said she applied to be a bus driver after seeing a Trent Barton advert.

“I loved being a bus driver and then being a lead driver and going on to be a manager. It has all been interesting and now at Kinchbus I’m looking forward to the challenge of tackling something completely different.”
