Alex Hornby becomes CEO

Transdev Blazefield has announced that Managing Director Alex Hornby is to become the company’s new Chief Executive.

Mr Hornby, who joined the company in February, replaces Martin Gilbert who has held the position for the past seven years. Mr Gilbert will move to the role of Non-Executive Chairman, where he will continue to provide support to Blazefield and the wider Transdev UK business.

“My colleagues here have done exceptionally well to stabilise the business after a challenging few years,” says Mr Hornby.

”We are now in a good place to grow and develop by doing great things for both our staff and, not least, our customers – who remain at the very heart of everything we do.

“I really believe that the innovative and customer-centric plans we are forming, thanks to the input of our team and our users, will develop the local transport offering further and make our products even more appealing and our company an even more exciting place to be.”

Transdev Blazefield operates 400 buses and employs over 1,000 people.
