Reading Buses makes preparations for CEO

As it makes final preparations for the arrival of new CEO Martijn Gilbert on 3 November, Reading Buses has allocated an interim position to Director of Resources Tony Pettitt.

Following James Freeman’s departure, Tony will work with fellow senior managers Jacqui Gavaghan (Performance Director) and Caroline Anscombe (HR Director) and the rest of the management team to smooth the transition and ensure the operator continues to move forward prior to Martijn taking over the reins.

Tony joined Reading Buses as a project support manager principally to oversee the construction of its gas fuelling plant, and has also been involved in the development of the company’s control room. He began his career as a local authority transport planner and was a consultant prior to joining Reading Buses.
