New Area Director for EYMS

Go North East has appointed Ben Gilligan as its new Area Director for East Yorkshire Motor Services (EYMS), including Scarborough and District Motor Services.

Leaving his role as Director of Public Transport for the South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive in Sheffield, from December, Ben will head up operations for EYMS from its Hull-headquarters.

With over 16 years’ experience in the sector – 13 of which were with First Bus, including as the former Managing Director of First York – Ben’s appointment follows the acquisition of EYMS in June by Go North East.

Martijn Gilbert, MD of Go North East and EYMS, says: “Ben will help strengthen our team and drive the local focus for our services and depots in East Yorkshire and Scarborough. We look forward to welcoming him to the company.”

Go North East’s Head of Engineering, Colin Barnes, has been interim General Manager since the summer and will hand over the reins to Ben when he officially starts on 10 December.
