Martin Sutton to step down

Stagecoach in Oxfordshire Managing Director, Martin Sutton, has announced he will retire after 46 years’ service in the bus industry on 5 July.

Martin, 64, began his career in 1972, and has been Managing Director of Stagecoach in Oxfordshire for the past 14 years.

He began his career with Trent Motor Traction Co. in Derby, and after time spent with several different operators, he joined Stagecoach in 1997, when he was appointed Managing Director of Stagecoach Cheltenham & Gloucester (now Stagecoach West).

Martin says: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my years in the bus industry and especially my time here in Oxford. It has been a great privilege to work with so many wonderful people, and I shall leave with many great memories.”

In 2000, Martin became Managing Director of Stagecoach South Midlands until, in 2004, South Midlands was divided into two – Stagecoach Midlands and Stagecoach in Oxfordshire, at which point he took on the role of Managing Director, Stagecoach in Oxfordshire.

Stagecoach UK Bus Managing Director for England and Wales, Mark Threapleton, said: “I would like to thank Martin for his commitment and the valuable contribution he has made over many years to deliver improvements for bus passengers across Oxfordshire.

“His vast experience, knowledge and passion for the industry means he has been a pleasure to work with and we wish him all the best for his retirement.”

Stagecoach in Oxfordshire has more than 550 employees and a fleet of almost 180 vehicles. The company operates bus services throughout Oxfordshire as well as the Oxford Tube,  providing express coach service between Oxford and London, and carries around 19 million passengers a year.

Stagecoach expects to confirm a new Managing Director of Stagecoach in Oxfordshire shortly.
