Nigel Featham to lead Go North West

Nigel Featham joins from Arriva with strong record of growth

Go-Ahead has recruited Nigel Featham as Managing Director to lead its new Go North West (GNW) operation in Manchester.

Mr Featham joins after 10 years at Arriva, where he led its North East, Yorkshire and Yorkshire Tiger operations, achieving strong passenger growth, revenue growth and customer satisfaction.

The new GNW business has started with Go-Ahead's takeover of First's Queens Road depot serving Oldham and Bolton with 163 vehicles, in a deal worth £11.2m [routeone/News/1 June].

David Brown, CEO of the Go-Ahead Group, says: “We are delighted to welcome Nigel to the business with the regional expertise and customer focus that he brings.

“Go North West is a significant growth opportunity for Go-Ahead and I am confident that Nigel will bring invaluable and inspiring leadership to the team in Manchester.”

Mr Featham says: “The North West is going to be one of the most dynamic theatres of public transport evolution in the next few years, and to be in at the ground floor with Go-Ahead is the sort of opportunity that is too good to turn down.”
