Bill Tanser (pictured) has joined Hugglescote-based Roberts Travel Group as General Manager.
Bill joins the business having spent 27 years with Woods Coaches at Wigston, where he started as a service driver before becoming a coach tour driver, then Traffic Manager and finally General Manager in 2013.
Roberts Travel Group is best known as a coach tour and day trip operator, but also operates a private hire division, several schedules bus routes, home-to-school transport throughout the region and the Leicester Park-and-Ride. It currently operates a fleet of 80 vehicles and employs over 120 staff.
“As much as I have enjoyed my long career at Woods, the opportunity to join a fast growing and highly respected company like Roberts Travel Group was too good to miss”, Bill says.
Roberts Travel Group Managing Director Jonathan Hunt says the hire comes during a period of expansion. “Gaining the services of such an experienced and talented individual as Bill at a time when our company is going through a period of rapid growth is a huge advantage for us,” he says. “We look forward to welcoming him aboard.”
