The Confederation of Passenger Transport UK (CPT) has promoted Paul White to Director, Scotland.
Paul replaces George Mair, who will remain with CPT Scotland part-time as Development Manager.
As Deputy Director CPT Scotland, Paul was instrumental in shaping CPT Scotland’s response to the Transport (Scotland) Bill and spearheading efforts to reform retrofit funding for coach and bus operators.
CPT Chief Executive Graham Vidler says: “Paul is an excellent choice to build on CPT Scotland’s strong reputation and I very much look forward to working closely with him.
“It’s also great news that our current Director, George Mair, will remain with us on a part-time basis to help ensure an effective transition, working with Paul to maintain CPT Scotland’s excellent reputation while developing member relationships throughout Scotland.
“Paul and I will also be working on the longer-term structure for CPT Scotland and I am committed to giving him the resources he needs to support the industry in the future.”
Paul has two Masters degrees, one in Politics from Glasgow University and one in Public Policy from Strathclyde University.
He is a Past Chair of the Scottish Transport Studies Group and a Board Member of SEStran, the South East of Scotland Transport Partnership.
