Mark Clissett has been appointed Divisional Managing Director of the Woodall Nicholson Bus Division, which includes Mellor and Treka Bus.

As a well-established senior figure in the accessible minibus sector, Mark Clissett founded Treka Bus and grew the Brighouse business to prominence before selling it to Woodall Nicholson in 2017. He succeeds John Randerson, who has become Woodall Nicholson’s Chief Technology Officer. John leads the group’s newly created Technology Division, ProMech Technologies.

Says Woodall Nicholson CEO Frank Barrett: “These appointments reveal the strength in depth nature of the team that we have within the company.

“Mark’s experience in the accessible bus sector means that he transitions seamlessly into the Divisional MD’s role, where he will further develop our size-appropriate product range and, with his customer-focused background, will further cultivate our growing customer base.

“John’s appointment is a reflection of the abundance of innovative and exciting technology that exists today in our existing products, and also in new products in advanced development. It is time for us to bring a sharper focus to our technical offering, to ensure that it delivers tangible benefits for our existing and new customers, and to ensure that technologies are fully optimised across all Woodall Nicholson brands.”
